UFC 251 Medical Suspensions: Kamaru Usman Faces Lengthy Sit

The UFC 251 medical suspensions have rolled out and Kamaru Usman is looking at a potential 180-day sit.

On July 11, Usman put his UFC welterweight championship on the line against Jorge Masvidal. The title bout served as UFC 251’s headliner. This was the UFC’s first event on its “Fight Island” trip, which is on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Usman retained his gold via unanimous decision but he didn’t walk away unscathed. He must have a nasal X-Ray cleared, otherwise he will have to sit for six months.

Maxim Grishin and Davey Grant are the two other fighters facing 180-day medical suspensions. Grishin, who dropped a unanimous decision to Marcin Tybura, must also have a nasal X-Ray cleared. As for Grant, he must be cleared by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or he’ll be out for six months. Grant scored a knockout victory over Martin Day in his outing.
