UFC 231 medical suspensions: Brian Ortega gets lengthy sit

Brian Ortega

UFC 231, which went down last Saturday night in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, produced some thrilling wars and decisive stoppages. There was featherweight champ Max Holloway’s bludgeoning of Brian Ortega in the main event. There was Gunnar Nelson’s submission defeat of Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira, which was set up by a chasmal slice across Oliveira’s forehead. There was Thiago Santos and Jimi Manuwa‘s wild war, which saw both men absorb heavy artillery until the former hit the canvas for good.

It was a wild and violent card, and as such, the kind of card that produced some lengthy medical suspensions — including a potential six-month sit for the vanquished Brian Ortega.

Here are the medical suspensions released by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport in the wake of the exciting Saturday night card (via MMA Fighting):
