UFC 234 Injuries And Suspensions

UFC 234 Injuries And Suspensions

UFC 234 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Silva vs Adesanya” event on Saturday (Feb. 9, 2019) inside Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia have been released by ABC records keeper mixedmartialarts.com courtesy of MMAJunkie.com.

Leading the way in mandatory sits are Israel Adesanya and Anderson Silva, who were both hit with lengthy sits following their highly-entertaining three-round affair which saw “The Last Stylebender” defeat “The Spider” via unanimous decision (see it again here).

Five other combatants were hit with the similar 180-day suspension after an action-packed night of fights. Tale a look at the full list below.

Israel Adesanya: suspended 180 days or until cleared by ophthalmologist for left eye; suspended a minimum of seven days.

Anderson Silva: suspended 180 days or until cleared by ophthalmologist for right eye; suspended a minimum of 30 days with 21 days no contact.

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.
