The Nevada State Athletic Commission just released a long list of fighters who’ll have to take some time off following UFC 216

Medical suspensions from UFC 216 are out, and there’s a couple of lengthy breaks some fighters will have to take if they can’t get cleared by a doctor. Up at the top of the list is Ray Borg, who’s out for 180 days due to a finger injury. How he only hurt a finger when his arm got twisted backwards is beyond me. From the other title fight, Kevin Lee has a 30 day suspension due to a possible eye injury.

Other serious suspensions include Lando Vannata, who is getting 60 days off with no contact for 45 days, and Evan Dunham, who is suspended for 180 days unless cleared due to blurry vision he suffered following the fight. Poliana Botelho also got served a 180 day suspension unless she clears her elbow.
