Following an exciting “Fight of the Night”-winning slugfest at last Saturday’s (March 17, 2018) UFC Fight Night 127 from the O2 Arena in London, England, light heavyweights Jan Blachowicz and Jimi Manuwa could be on the sidelines for quite some time.

According to the recently released UFC London medical suspensions courtesy of MMAjunkie.com, Blachowicz, who won the bout by decision after dropping their first match in 2015, will be out up to 180 days unless he obtains an X-ray on his left and is cleared by a medical doctor. If he is cleared he could return sooner, but will still be suspended for 30 days including 21 days with no contact.

On the other hand, Manuwa will also face the full six-month sit unless he has his broken nose cleared by an ear, nose, and throat doctor. He also will be suspended for a mandatory 45 days with no contact.

In terms of the headliner, the victorious Alexander Volkov received a 30-day sit with 21 days no contact for a laceration, while rival Fabricio Werdum got a slightly longer suspension of 60 days with 45 days no contact for a knockout loss.
