UFC Fight Night 122 Medical Suspensions: Bisping Gets 60 Days Following Knockout Loss

By Tristen Critchfield Nov 28, 2017


Michael Bisping has received a 60-day medical suspension after being finished for the second time in three weeks at UFC Fight Night 122.

The UFC released a list of medical suspensions from the event to mixedmartialarts.com on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night 122 took place at Mercedez-Benz Arena in Shanghai this past Saturday, marking the promotion’s first-ever visit to mainland China.

Bisping suffered a knockout loss to Kelvin Gastelum 2:30 into the opening round of their headlining middleweight encounter. “The Count” lost his middleweight title after being choked unconscious by Georges St. Pierre at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 but was cleared to compete despite initially receiving a 30-day medical suspension. Bisping stepped in on short notice for Anderson Silva, who was pulled from the card due to an anti-doping violation.

In addition to his 60-day layoff, Bisping is also banned from contact for 45 days. Gatelum received a mandatory seven-day medical suspension.

Four fighters are looking at potential 180-day suspensions pending doctor clearance: Zak Ottow (right hand), Song Yadong (right foot); Shamil Abdurakhimov (left thumb) and Gina Mazany (left toe).
