UFC 230 medical suspensions: Chris Weidman gets longest term for TKO loss

Chris Weidman was stopped in the third round of a grueling “Fight of the Night” battle at UFC 230, and as a result he’s been handed the longest medical suspension among fighters on the card.

MMAjunkie today requested and received medical suspensions for UFC 230, which took place this past Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York and was regulated by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).

Weidman (14-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) suffered a third-round TKO defeat to Ronaldo Souza (26-5 MMA, 9-4 UFC) in the card’s middleweight co-headliner, which aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

According to suspensions released by the NYSAC, Weidman got a three-month suspension unless he gets doctor clearance. Ben Saunders (22-11-2 MMA, 8-8 UFC), who also suffered a loss due to strikes, gets 90 days alongside Weidman.
