All UFC 120 fighters receive medical suspensions

In a rare occurrence, each of the twenty individuals competing at last weekend’s UFC 120 event has been issued a medical suspension. Though athletic commissions are typically in charge of assigning mandatory breaks from the ring based on damage sustained, the UFC itself was at the root of the suspensions this go-round based on the lack of such an organization in England.

News of the suspensions was reported by Sherdog.

Cheick Kongo, Mike Pyle, Travis Browne, and Rob Broughton are all potentially facing the longest hiatus from competition at 180 days. However, each of the four can significantly reduce their time on the sideline by receiving medical clearance for a variety of injuries.

Here is a complete list of UFC 120 medical suspensions:

Fabio Maldonado – Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
James McSweeney – Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days
