UFC 252 Medical Suspensions: Cormier Eye Injury Lands 6 Month Layoff

UFC 252 is in the books and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has since announced the medical suspensions stemming from Saturday’s event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Stipe Miocic, who retained the heavyweight championship with his win over Daniel Cormier, will have a minimum suspension until September 30 and must have his left eye cleared by a retinal specialist.

Cormier, who was also on the receiving end of a devastating eye poke, must have his left eye cleared by an ophthalmologist, or else he will be sidelined for six months. Of course, Cormier did state after the bout that he was ready to hang up his gloves.

Co-main event participant Sean O’Malley could also be sidelined for six months unless he has his right ankle cleared by an orthopedic doctor.
