UFC Fight Night 111 injuries and medical suspensions for those athletes competing at the “Holm vs. Correia” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Fight Pass last Saturday (June 17, 2017) from inside Singapore Indoor Stadium were released on Monday by UFC, which serves as its own regulatory body in select overseas territories.

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is women’s bantamweight headliner Bethe Correia, who could find herself riding the pine for up to 180 days following her savage knockout loss to Holly Holm (recap).

That’s not all.

Former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is also facing a six-month timeout after mangling his mitt against Marcin Tybura (details), which is the same sentence for streaking welterweight wrestler Colby Covington (recap).

The full list of UFC Fight Night 111 medical suspensions, courtesy of MMA Junkie, are as follows:

Holly Holm: suspended 7 days
Bethe Correia: suspended 180 days or until she receives “dental clearance,” and suspended a minimum 60 days with 45 days no contact

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
