UFC 195 Medical Suspensions: Dustin Poirier, Kyle Noke Get Potential 6-Month Sits

By Sherdog.com Staff Jan 4, 2016

Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Dustin Poirier and middleweight Kyle Noke could be sidelined for six months after both men suffered broken noses at last Saturday’s UFC 195.

The Nevada Athletic Commission on Monday released its list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Poirier, who prevailed over Joseph Duffy in a high-stakes undercard matchup, must have his nasal fracture cleared by a doctor or else sit out until July 2. The same is true for Noke, who dropped a narrow split decision to Alex Morono and also suffered a left elbow strain during the three-round bout, per NAC notes.

Early winner Sheldon Westcott received the only other lengthy suspension from the bill, as the Canadian welterweight must have his right hand and left knee cleared or else stay out of action until July.

Surprisingly, UFC welterweight champ Robbie Lawler and challenger Carlos Condit seem to have emerged from their five-round battle relatively unscathed. Both men received two-month suspensions with an order for no contact in training until Feb. 17.
