UFC on ESPN 12 Medical Suspensions: Poirier, Hooker Get 60 Days

The Ultimate Fighting Championship wrapped up a busy June with UFC on ESPN 12 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event was headlined by a Fight of the Year contender between top-five ranked lightweights Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker, with the Poirier, the former interim champion at 155-pounds, coming away with the win.

Following the event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission handed down its medical suspensions for the event with just three fighters (Khama Worthy, Brendan Allen, and Gian Villante) earning the maximum 180-day suspensions.

Poirier and Hooker, meanwhile, received just 60 days without contact following their all-out war.
