Ronda Rousey, Chris Weidman Among Those Who Receive Medical Suspensions

ufc 175

UFC 175 was a rough night for many, including several of the big winners. Chris Weidman, Ronda Rousey and others were all handed medical suspensions by the Nevada Athletic Commission recently.

Weidman, who defended his middleweight title with a decision win over Lyoto Machida, has a minimum suspension until August for an assortment of injuries. In fact, Weidman must be cleared before he can return to action by a doctor, otherwise he’ll be suspended until next year.

Rousey, a co-main event winner over Alexis Davis in a successful defense of her bantamweight crown, must have her hand checked out before returning to action anytime before January. “Rowdy” made it known that she already received stitches in the hand the night of the fight, and also plans to have her knee looked at in the coming days and weeks.

Machida, Davis, Uriah Hall and others were all given medical suspensions. The complete list can be viewed below:
