UFC 210 Medical Suspensions: Daniel Cormier, Chris Weidman Sidelined 45 Days

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 11, 2017


The New York State Athletic Commission issued no medical suspensions longer than 45 days following UFC 210.

Among those receiving potential 45-day layoffs were light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former middleweight king Chris Weidman. The NYSAC released a list of medical suspensions from the event to Sherdog.com on Tuesday.

UFC 210 took place at the Keybank Center in Buffalo, N.Y., on April 8 and saw Cormier retain his 205-pound title with a second round submission of Anthony Johnson in the evening’s main event. Cormier is suspended a minimum of 45 days pending NYSAC clearance, while Johnson received a 30-day sit. The NYSAC does not disclose specific reasons for its suspensions.

Meanwhile, Weidman received a possible 45-day layoff following his controversial second-round TKO defeat to Gegard Mousasi in the co-main event. The bout was halted when it was determined Weidman could not continue after Mousasi landed a pair of knees to the head. Initially, the blows were thought to be illegal before the ruling was overturned. Mousasi received a mandatory seven-day suspension following the bout.
