UFC 250 Medical Suspensions: Nunes, Spencer Could Miss 6 Months

UFC 250 — which featured a dominant win by women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes and impressive knockouts from Cody Garbrandt and Sean O’Malley — is in the books.

Following the event, the Nevada Athletic Commission announced the medical suspensions for each fighter with Nunes and Felicia Spencer facing six-month layoffs along with five others — Chase Hooper, Brian Kelleher, Charles Byrd, Alex Perez, and Devin Clark.

Nunes could return sooner than her 180-day ban if her right tibia/fibula is cleared by an orthopedic physician. Spencer, meanwhile, has to have her left orbital floor and nasal fracture cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon.
