Bellator 170 Medical Suspensions: Fighter Shelved For ‘Unreported Stab Wound’

0

Suspensions and mandatory rests have been dished out to the Bellator 170 fighters. The event took place this past Saturday night from The Forum in Inglewood, California. The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) sent a full list of medical suspensions to MMAFighting.com.

Christian Gonzalez was hit with a rather bizarre suspension. In addition to being shelved for a minimum of 30 days with no contact due to his TKO loss to Daniel Rodriguez, Gonzalez has been indefinitely suspended for an “unreported stab wound.”

The other notable medical suspension was the one given to Brennan Ward. The welterweight was knocked out cold by Paul Daley from a flying knee. “The Irish Bad Boy” has also been suspended indefinitely and will need to be cleared by a neurologist to resume competition.

Below is a full list of the Bellator 170 medical suspensions:
