UFC 199 Medical Suspensions: Hector Lombard Facing 6 Months After KO Loss

By Tristen Critchfield Jun 8, 2016


Six fighters from an action-packed UFC 199 card are looking at potential six-month layoffs.

The California State Athletic Commission released medical suspensions from the event on Wednesday to MMAjunkie.com. UFC 199 took place at The Forum in Los Angeles on June 4 and saw Michael Bisping claim middleweight gold with a first-round knockout of Luke Rockhold in the evening’s main event. Bisping received a mandatory seven-day suspension, while Rockhold was suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days due to a knockout loss.

The most notable fighter sidelined for a possible 180 days is Hector Lombard, who suffered a second-round knockout loss to Dan Henderson in a featured middleweight clash. Henderson landed a head kick and a slashing backward elbow to knock “Lightning” out cold. One final forearm strike punctuated Henderson’s victory 1:27 into the period.

As a result, Lombard has been suspended six months with no contact for “prolonged recovery from knockout.” Henderson, meanwhile, received a 45 day suspension with no contact for 30 days due to a hard bout.

The other fighters from UFC 199 who received potential six-month suspensions were Sean Strickland, Johnathan Wilson, Kevin Casey, Marco Polo Reyes and Dong Hyun Kim.
