UFC 169 Medical Suspensions: 8 Fighters Receive Indefinite Suspensions
UFC 169 is a wrap and you know what that means…time for medical suspensions.
None of the fighters in the two title fights received any, but overall there were 8 fighters who received indefinite suspensions. The New Jersey Athletic Control Board released the full list of medical suspensions from UFC 169.
Jamie Varner received a 30 day suspension and needs to be medically cleared following his devastating knockout loss to Abel Trujillo. Nick Catone won his fight against Tom Watson but suffered a knee injury in the process, an injury we know is a torn ACL because Catone tweeted about it after his fight on Saturday.
Here is the full list:
Jamie Varner: suspended 30 days for KO, suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan and neurological evaluation
John Makdessi: suspended 60 days for facial lacerations
Nick Catone: suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic clearance of left knee
Tom Watson: suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic clearance of right elbow and right foot
Al Iaquinta: suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic evaluation of right knee and suspended 30 days for left lateral brow laceration
Kevin Lee: suspended indefinitely pending opthalmological clearance
Rashid Magomedov: suspended indefinitely pending x-ray of left foot
Tony Martin: suspended indefinitely pending MRI of left knee
Neil Magny: suspended indefinitely pending x-ray skull/sinus, suspended 30 days with no contact
