UFC Fight Night 51 Medical Suspensions: Arlovski Gets 180 Days

UFC Fight 51 went down last Saturday (September 13, 2014) live from Ginasio Nison Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil. The main event featured a clash of giants as top heavyweights Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski went to battle.

Many fans and media members were picking Silva to take this one home. However, “The Pitbull” surprised many, coming out firing and picking up a first round knockout over Silva. This is a huge win for the Belarusian fighter and will definitely propel him towards the top of the heavyweight contenders list.

However, he may have to wait quite a bit of time before getting back in the octagon and proving his true worth. The Brazilian athletic commission announced on Monday (September 15, 2014) that Arlovski is facing a 6-month medical suspension pending clearance from a doctor.

Arlovski is not the only one who came out of Saturday night banged up, as two other fighters are facing six-month suspensions as well.

    Why?

    • D

      Well it says pending a wrist X-Ray, so apparently there’s some concern that he may have broken his wrist punching Bigfoot’s big ass head.
