UFC 205 Medical Suspensions: Chris Weidman Gets 60 Days After Brutal KO Defeat

By Tristen Critchfield Nov 16, 2016


Former middleweight king Chris Weidman will be sidelined for 60 days following his knockout loss to Yoel Romero at UFC 205 this past weekend.

The New York State Athletic Commission recently released a list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday and marked the Las Vegas-based promotion’s debut in the Empire State.

Weidman was felled by a flying knee from Romero 24 seconds into the third-round of their featured 185-pound scrap. Weidman began bleeding profusely from the blow and the bout was halted after Romero landed a few follow-up punches on the canvas.

Weidman, who must receive medical clearance from the NYSAC, did attend Saturday’s post-fight press conference.

UFC 205 saw Conor McGregor capture the lightweight title with a second-round knockout of Eddie Alvarez in the evening’s main event. While McGregor emerged from the bout with a clean bill of health, Alvarez was suspended a minimum of 30 days pending NYSAC clearance.
