UFC 252 medical suspensions: Stipe Miocic, Daniel Cormier both need eye clearance – MMA Junkie




By |


Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier both need to have issues with their left eyes checked out following their heavyweight title trilogy bout at UFC 252 on Saturday.

MMA Junkie obtained the full list from the Nevada Athletic Commission on Monday. Fighters can return sooner than the duration of their suspension if cleared by a doctor.

Miocic (20-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) and Cormier (22-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) had a grueling five-round fight in the headliner of the event at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, with Miocic keeping the belt. A second-round eye poke on Cormier apparently tore his cornea, and that’s one of the issues “DC” will need checked out post-fight. Miocic, meanwhile, needs hie eye examined, too.

Outside of the main event, bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley (12-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) faces the longest medical suspension. He hurt his leg in a first-round TKO loss in the co-main event, and will need his ankle cleared, otherwise he’s out until February 2021.

UFC 250 medical suspensions: Amanda Nunes, Felicia Spencer face potential six-month terms – MMA Fighting

Two-division UFC champ Amanda Nunes and featherweight title challenger Felicia Spencer had very different competitive outcomes at UFC 250, but both face potentially long timeouts.

According to medical suspensions released on Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission, which regulated the ESPN+ pay-per-view event this past Saturday at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nunes needs an X-ray of her right tibia and fibula to avoid a six-month suspension.

Spencer, meanwhile, needs doctor clearance for an orbital fracture and broken nose to shorten a half-year timeout.

Nunes battered Spencer over five rounds to retain the UFC featherweight title. So dominant was the champ’s performance, many fighters said online that the Spencer’s corner could have thrown in the towel.

If Nunes follows through with her stated post-fight plans, a six-month suspension will have no effect on her career. The champ said she might not fight for the rest of 2020 as she prepares for the arrival of her daughter with UFC strawweight Nina Ansaroff.

In other notable suspensions, Raphael Assuncao and Eddie Wineland, who were viciously knocked out in respective bouts against ex-champ Cody Garbrandt and Sean O’Malley, received 60-day suspensions.

Here’s the full list of medical suspensions from UFC 250:

Amanda Nunes: needs X-ray of right tibia/fibula – if broken, needs orthopedic doctor clearance or suspended until Dec. 4; suspended at a minimum until July 7 with no contact until June 28.

Felicia Spencer: needs clearance from maxillofacial surgeon on left orbital floor and nasal fracture or suspended until Dec. 4; suspended at a minimum until Aug. 6 with no contact until July 22.

Raphael Assuncao: suspended until Aug. 6 with no contact until July 22.

Neil Magny: suspended until July 7 with no contact until June 28.

Eddie Wineland: suspended until Aug. 6 with no contact until July 22.
