Two-time UFC welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson received a 30-day medical suspension in the aftermath of his loss to Tyron Woodley at UFC 209, according to information released Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission to MMA Fighting.

Thompson suffered a controversial majority decision loss to Woodley, marking the second time in five months that “Wonderboy” has fallen short in his pursuit of the UFC welterweight title.
