Bellator 172 Medical Suspensions: Josh Thomson Gets Potential 6-Month Layoff After KO Loss

By Tristen Critchfield Feb 22, 2017


Josh Thomson returned to the cage following more than a year away at Bellator 172. After a knockout loss to Patricky Freire, Thomson could be facing another extended layoff.

Thomson was suspended for 180 days pending doctor clearance after falling to Freire via knockout 40 seconds into the second round of Saturday’s main event at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. At a minimum, “The Punk” is sidelined 45 days with 30 days of no contact.

Freire, meanwhile, received just a mandatory seven-day medical suspension for rest. The California State Athletic Commission released a full list of medical suspensions from Bellator 172 to MMAFighting.com on Wednesday.

Five other fighters from the card are facing possible 180-day sits: Brooke Mayo, James Terry, Cesar Gonzalez, Anthony Do and Abraham Vaesau.
