20 0

Five fighters received 180-day suspensions by the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) medical team following last Saturday’s UFC Sao Paulo, the commission announced Tuesday.

Thales Leites and Hector Lombard, who met in a middleweight bout at the Ibirapuera gymnasium, were given six-month medical suspensions after the 15-minute fight.

Lombard, who lost via unanimous decision, could return to action sooner if cleared by doctor of a potential orbital bone fracture. Leites, who retired with the win, needs clearance of left knee if he decides to come back in less than six months.

Luigi Vendramini, a victim of a brutal knockout by the hands of Elizeu Zaleski, can’t return before April 22 without clearance of an orthopedist.

Mayra Bueno Silva, victorious in the first round against Gillian Robertson, needs clearance of left knee or she’s also out for six months. Silva is expected to get his exams back on Wednesday, her team told MMA Fighting on Monday.

Also victorious in his UFC debut, Augusto Sakai was given a six-month suspension. Speaking with MMA Fighting on Tuesday, Sakai said his right thumb is broken, but is still waiting for his doctor’s decision whether or not it needs surgery.
