Suspensions! Nunes, Jacare Join Six-Month Club

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view (PPV) last Saturday night (May 12, 2018) inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, featuring Amanda Nunes in her latest women’s bantamweight title defense against Octagon veteran Raquel Pennington.

While “Rocky” took the brunt of the violence (watch it), it was “Lioness” who earned the longer medical suspension. She’ll be on the bench for six-months alongside co-headliner Ronaldo Souza, who like his Brazilian counterpart, needs a right-foot X-Ray before getting cleared for competition (because of this).

That’s not all.

Full list of UFC 224 injuries and medical suspensions (via MMA Fighting) include:

Amanda Nunes: Suspended 180 days, requires x-ray of right foot; if cleared then 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact
Ronaldo Souza: Suspended 180 days, requires x-ray of right foot; if cleared then 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact
Raquel Pennington: Suspended 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact pending clearance from maxillofacial surgeon
Brian Kelleher: Suspended 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact
Vitor Belfort: Suspended 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact
Sean Strickland: Suspended 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact
Sultan Aliev: Suspended 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact pending clearance from maxillofacial surgeon
Thales Leites: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact
Alberto Mina: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact
Kelvin Gastelum: Suspended 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact
Aleksei Oleinik: Suspended 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact
Mackenzie Dern: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Amanda Cooper: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
John Lineker: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Lyoto Machida: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Cezar Ferreira: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Karl Roberson: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Junior Albini: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Davi Ramos: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Nick Hein: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Warley Alves: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Jack Hermansson: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Ramazan Emeev: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
Markus Perez: Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact
James Bochnovic : Suspended 14 days no contest, 7 days no contact

There you have it.

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
