UFC 216 Medical Suspensions: Ray Borg Facing Six-Month Sit

UFC 216 Medical Suspensions

Ray Borg is looking at a potential lengthy sit.

UFC 216 is history and the medical suspensions have been released. The event’s co-headliner saw Demetrious Johnson break Anderson Silva’s consecutive successful title defense record. He submitted Borg in the fifth round. Borg could find himself out of action until April 2018 pending clearance for his right fourth finger.

Headliner Kevin Lee fell short in his bid for the interim lightweight title against Tony Ferguson. He has been suspended until November and won’t be allowed to make contact until Oct. 29 due to a possible left eye corneal abrasion.
