Bellator 172 Medical Suspensions: Josh Thomson & Five Others Shelved 180 Days

Josh Thomson may be out quite a while.

The Bellator 172 medical suspensions were released to MMAFighting.com. Five fighters on the card, including Thomson, were handed 180-day suspensions pending doctor’s clearance.

Bellator 172 took place inside the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The event was supposed to be headlined by a heavyweight battle between mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Fedor Emelianenko and former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) competitor Matt Mitrione. Instead, Mitrione was pulled due to kidney stones.

A lightweight clash between Patricky Freire and “The Punk” took the main event spot. “Pitbull” knocked out Thomson in the second round with a thunderous uppercut. Freire’s knockout win spoiled Thomson’s Bellator debut and his hometown showing.
