UFC 212 Medicals: Johnny Eduardo, Jim Wallhead Facing Potential 6-Month Suspensions

By Jordan Breen Jun 5, 2017


Not only did Johnny Eduardo take an unnecessary beating at UFC 212, he's potentially got a broken foot, to boot.

On Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released a list of post-fight medical suspensions following Saturday's UFC bill, which was headlined by Max Holloway's thrilling knockout of Jose Aldo to take the undisputed featherweight title in the main event. Despite the beating he took in the third and decisive round, the all-time 145-pound king Aldo was only handed a 45-day suspension with 30 days of no contact.

The primary medical note was actually Aldo's Nova Uniao senior, 36-year-old Johnny Eduardo, who was diagnosed with a potentially broken right foot in his first-round loss to Matthew Lopez. It was the first knockout loss of the 20-year MMA veteran's career and came amidst controversy due to referee Mario Yamasaki's late and brutal stoppage, as Lopez fired away on an insensate Eduardo.

British veteran Jim Wallhead faces the only other potential six-month suspension, needing to be cleared by an ophthalmologist, avoid the 180-day ban and accept a mere 45-day suspension with 30 days of no contact.
