UFC 212 Medical Suspensions: Two Fighters May Be Out for Six Months

The Brazilian Athletic Commission of MMA (CABMMA) on Monday released the medical suspensions stemming from Saturday’s UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The event featured 12 fights at the Jeunesse Arena and was headlined by a featherweight title unification bout between champion Jose Aldo and interim titleholder Max Holloway. Holloway unified the belts by finishing Aldo with strikes in the third round.

The suspensions vary from a mandatory two-week rest period to six months with two of the 24 fighters that competed on the fight card facing a potential six months on the sidelines.
