UFC 179 Medical Suspensions: Davis & Jorgensen Face Six Months

 The UFC 179 medical suspensions are in, and the two fighters you expected to be hurt are actually OK……

Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes have actually got away somewhat unscathed from the main event at UFC 179, as the suspensions list shows that Phil Davis and Scott Jorgensen face the longest potential sit on the DL. “”Mr Wonderful” smothered Glover Teixeira in the co-main event of the evening, and likely put himself right back in the mix at 205 pounds.

With the win for Davis, there is the potential for six months out, but that can change if a physician is able to clear Davis’ right hand. WEC veteran Scott Jorgensen also faces 180 days, thanks to the brutal kick to the body from Wilson Reis in their catchweight prelim bout.
