UFC on FOX 25 medical suspensions bench Cummins, LaFlare for up to three months

UFC on FOX 25 medical suspensions for those athletes competing at the “Weidman vs. Gastelum” event last weekend (Sat., July 22, 2017) from inside NYCB Live on Long Island, were released on Thursday by New York State Athletic Commission.

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is light heavyweight bruiser Patrick Cummins, who sustained a boatload of damage in his controversial win over Gian Villante (watch the replay here).

Joining “Durkin” in the three-month club is welterweight standout Ryan LaFlare, who got smoked by Alex Oliveira on the FOX “Prelims” portion of last weekend’s mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza (see it again here).

That’s not all.
