UFC 200 Medical Suspensions: Ex-Champ Miesha Tate Facing Lengthy Layoff

By Tristen Critchfield Jul 12, 2016


Former bantamweight queen Miesha Tate could be out for up to 185 days following her loss to Amanda Nunes in the UFC 200 headliner.

The Nevada Athletic Commission recently released a list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this past Saturday. Tate was submitted by a rear-naked choke 3:16 into the opening round of her featured clash with Nunes.

Prior to the submission, “Cupcake” ate several hard punches to the face, and she revealed during the post-fight press conference that she likely suffered a broken nose during the fight. That injury has since been confirmed, and Tate must be cleared by a doctor or she cannot compete for 185 days. At a minimum, she will be out for 60 days with no contact for 45 days.

Four other fighters from UFC 200 are facing 185-days layoffs: Travis Browne (wrist), Raphael Assuncao (nose), Sage Northcutt (elbow) and Diego Sanchez (orbital and nasal fractures).
