The first event of the new Dana White’s Contender Series season has wrapped up and the medical suspensions have rolled out.
Not only did Chris Curtis not earn an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contract despite earning a TKO win, but he also has the most lengthy suspension. Curtis must be cleared by an orthopedic doctor for his broken left thumb. Otherwise, it’ll be no contest until Dec. 10. Curtis recently announced his retirement, but it’ll be interesting to see if that sticks.
Austen Lane, who was knocked out by Greg Hardy in under one minute will be out until July 28. He’ll be required to refrain from contact until July 13. Check out the result of the medical suspensions below (via MMAFighting.com):
