UFC 246 was, by all accounts, a pretty violent card. Just ask Donald Cerrone, who was mauled to a TKO loss by Conor McGregor in just 40 seconds in the main event.

Given the nature of this card, it should come as no surprise that several fighters on the bill are facing lengthy medical suspensions.

Cerrone, for example, is facing a six-month suspension for nose and orbital fractures. UFC 246 undercard fighter Maycee Barber, meanwhile, is facing a long sit of her own after a lopsided loss to Roxanne Modafferi.
