UFC 227 Medical Suspensions: Garbrandt Out For up to 180 Days

The UFC 227 medical suspensions have rolled out.

UFC 227 took place this past Saturday night (Aug. 4). The event was held inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The main card aired live on pay-per-view (see results here).

In the main event, T.J. Dillashaw successfully retained his UFC bantamweight title against Cody Garbrandt via first-round TKO. It appears Dillashaw walked out of the bout unscathed as he has only received a seven-day mandatory rest. It’s a different story for Garbrandt, however as he is suspended for 180 days pending clearance from a physician for a possible right hand fracture. Even if he is cleared, he’ll have to sit for 45 days with 30 days no contact.

Sixty-day suspensions were handed to Kevin Holland, Alex Perez, and Wuliji Buren for lacerations. They can all be cleared beforehand, but Buren must sit for 45 days as he was knocked out in his bout against Marlon Vera.
