Kamaru Usman could Face longer Medical Suspension than Jorge Masvidal

by Aleksandar Urdarevik on July 17, 2020

Kamaru Usman earned the victory at UFC 251, but Jorge Masvidal did a number to him.



Retaining his title against challenger Masvidal in the pay-per-view headliner, Usman (17-1 MMA, 12-0 UFC) received a longer medical suspension than his opponent.

On Friday, MixedMartialArts.com, the ABC’s official recordkeeper, supplied the medical suspensions from the first night of Fight Island. Fighters can return sooner than the duration of their suspension with a doctor's clearance.

According to the list, Usman is potentially facing a broken nose from the 25-minute duration of his unanimous decision victory. If confirmed, he'll face a 180-day suspension.

Masvidal (35-13 MMA, 12-6 UFC), on the other hand, is facing a 30-day suspension due to a facial laceration.



Like Masvidal, UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, and UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan all received similar 30-day suspensions. former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo received a mandatory TKO-loss suspension of 45 days.

UFC 251 took place Saturday at the Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. The main card streamed on pay-per-view after prelims simulcasted on ESPN and ESPN+.
