UFC 219 Medical Suspensions: Holly Holm, Edson Barboza Receive 3-Month Terms

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 3, 2018


Holly Holm will be out for three months after her loss to Cristiane Justino at UFC 219.

The Nevada Athletic Commission released a full list of medical suspensions from the event on Wednesday. “The Preacher’s Daughter” lost a five-round unanimous decision to Justino in a featherweight title bout in this past Saturday’s headliner at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “Cyborg” did not receive a medical suspension.

Meanwhile, Edson Barboza also earned a three-month term after absorbing a lopsided beating in a decision loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in the evening’s lightweight co-main event. Like Justino, Nurmagomedov emerged with a clean bill of health.

Two fighters from UFC 219 are facing six months on the shelf pending physician clearance: Cynthia Calvillo (left hand) and Neil Magny (left thumb).
