UFC 198 Medical Suspensions: Warlley Alves, Yancy Medeiros Facing 6-Month Layoffs

By Tristen Critchfield May 17, 2016


Both Warlley Alves and Yancy Medeiros are facing potential 180-day suspensions following their bouts at UFC 198.

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) recently released a full list of medical suspensions from this past Saturday’s event to Sherdog.com.

Alves suffered a potentially fractured orbital in his unanimous decision loss to Bryan Barberena in a featured welterweight bout and will be out up to six months unless he is cleared by a physician. Medeiros, meanwhile, absorbed a tremendous amount of punishment in a three-round defeat against Francisco Trinaldo at lightweight and must have a facial injury cleared or he will also be sidelined for a maximum period of six months.

UFC 198 took place at Baixada Arena in Curitiba, Brazil and saw Stipe Miocic capture heavyweight gold with a first-round knockout of reigning champion Fabricio Werdum in the evening’s main event. Werdum has been suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact, while Miiocic received the minimum 14-day suspension with seven days no contact.
