UFC 210: Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson

This past weekend, the UFC hit New York for a highly anticipated night of fights headlined by a light heavyweight tilt between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson for the UFC light heavyweight championship. In the co-main event, former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman looked to return to title contention as he fought Gegard Mousasi in a showdown which proved to be extremely controversial.

Below, you can see the full medical suspensions from the card courtesy of MMAMania:

Gegard Mousasi
Cynthia Calvillo
Thiago Alves
Charles Oliveira
Myles Jury
Gegor Gillespie

Katlyn Chookagian
Irene Aldana

While fighters often return to the Octagon much quicker than their medical suspension would lead fans to indicate, no fighter listed above received a medical suspension longer than 45 days, meaning all UFC 210 fighters will be eligible to fight again very soon!
