The UFC 227 medical suspensions are in, and former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt is facing a lengthy term.

“No Love” took on archrival TJ Dillashaw in the main event of last weekend’s (Sat., August 4, 2018) pay-per-view (PPV) from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. There, he lost by knockout for a second straight bout with “The Viper,” meanwhile ending his heated rivalry with his former friend.

While that seems like enough punishment, Garbrandt will face more agony due to the UFC 227 medical suspensions. Garbrandt will face a potential six-month suspension for a broken right hand. He can avoid the maximum term if cleared by a physician. The one-time champ is also facing 45 days for the knockout loss.

Dillashaw was only given a seven-day mandatory suspension in a win. Meanwhile, co-main fighters Henry Cejudo and Demetrious Johnson also received only seven days.
