UFC 246 medical suspensions

The UFC 246 medical suspensions are in, after this past weekend’s (Sat. January 18, 2020) UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the main event of the night, Conor McGregor ran through Donald Cerrone at welterweight, finishing “Cowboy” in only 40 seconds. McGregor nailed Cerrone with some nasty shoulder strikes that fractured Cerrone’s nose and orbital bone. Now, Cerrone is suspended for six months, or until cleared by doctors.

The fight was McGregor’s first since October of 2018. He did not receive a medical suspension seeing as he was not hit once. You can check out the full UFC 246 medical suspensions below, courtesy of MMA Fighting.
