The medical suspensions for Sunday night’s ‘UFC On Versus 4’ event in Pittsburgh were released today and show that just five fighters will face time out on the sidelines as a result of their injuries.
Perhaps the worst off on this occasion was Nick Lentz who suffered a broken orbital bone as a result of an illegal knee thrown by Charles Oliveira. Lentz is to go undergo surgery for the injury in the near future and is likely to be out for quite some time, while his camp are appealing his loss after the referee appeared not to see the incident.
After being knocked out in their respective bouts heavyweight fighters Pat Barry and Christian Morecraft will also have to sit out the next 60 days as a precautionary measure.
See the full list of medical suspensions below.
Pat Barry suspended 60 days, must gain neurological clearance
Christian Morecraft suspended 60 days
Nik Lentz suspended 60 days, must have right eye (orbital) checked
Matt Grice suspended 45 days
Edward Faaloloto suspended 30 days
