UFC 249 Medical Suspensions: Tony Ferguson Out at Least 2 Months

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to action over the weekend with UFC 249 in Jacksonville, Florida. When the night was all said and done, it was Justin Gaethje and Henry Cejudo who walked away with UFC belts around their waists.

Following the event, the Florida State Boxing Commission announced its medical suspensions for the event.

Gaethje is facing no medical layoff, while fellow main event participant Tony Ferguson will miss a minimum of two months. Ferguson was on the wrong end of a lopsided loss and could see his suspension extended depending on the full damage assessed by additional tests.

Cejudo and Dominick Cruz received 45-day suspensions.

Sam Alvey, Ryan Spann, Niko Price, Fabricio Werdum, Aleksei Oleinik, Anthony Pettis, Yorgan De Castro, and Calvin Kattar face potential 180-day bans.
