UFC 203 Medical Suspensions: Alistair Overeem, Travis Browne Sidelined Indefinitely

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 13, 2016


Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne have been suspended indefinitely following losses at UFC 203 on Saturday.

The Ohio Athletic Commission recently released a full list of medical suspensions from the event. UFC 203 took place at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland and saw Stipe Miocic retain the heavyweight crown with a first-round stoppage of Overeem in the evening’s main event.

Overeem needs a CT scan within five days and an MRI after five days following his first-round knockout loss. The Jackson-Wink MMA product was also suspended for 60 days. Miocic was suspended 45 days with 15 days of no contact.

Browne, meanwhile, is out indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance on his right finger, which he appeared to injure in the first round of a unanimous decision loss to Fabricio Werdum in the co-main event. The Hawaiian briefly asked for a stop in the action after the injury, but after being examined by medical personnel he elected to continue.

Three other fighters from Saturday’s card face indefinite layoffs: Jimmie Rivera (needs ophthalmologist clearance), Brad Tavares (lower back), Sean Spencer (left hand).
