UFC 205 Medical Suspensions

The list for last week’s UFC 205 medical suspensions has been released by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC). The majority of the fighters were given 30 day suspensions, while three fighters (Chris Weidman, Rafael Natal & Belal Muhammad) were given sixty day suspensions. Of course, no matter how long the suspension is, a fighter may not return to action with prior approval from the NYSAC. An interesting name that is on the list is the now retired Miesha Tate, because she will not have to follow the medical directives from the state unless she plans on returning to competition.

(MMA Junkie was the first to release the list.)

Eddie Alvarez: suspended a minimum 30 days pending New York State Athletic Commission clearance
