The UFC 224 medical suspensions are in.

This past Saturday night (May 12), UFC 224 took place inside the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the main event, Amanda Nunes put her women’s bantamweight title on the line against Raquel Pennington. Nunes battered the challenger on her way to a fifth round TKO victory.

In an interesting turn of events, Nunes was actually hit with a lengthier suspension than Pennington. “The Lioness” has been medically suspended for 180 days and requires an X-ray of her right foot. If she’s cleared, then she must go 30 days no contest and 21 days of no contact. Pennington was given 60 days no contest and needs clearance from a maxillofacial surgeon.

Jacare Souza received a 180-day suspension for the same reason as Nunes. He too must have an X-ray taken of his right foot. The difference is he’ll get 45 days no contest if he’s cleared and 30 days no contact.
