UFC Fight Night Brisbane Medicals: Mir, Lombard Given Potential 6-Month Suspensions

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 24, 2016


Frank Mir and Hector Lombard lost in decidedly different fashions at UFC Fight Night Brisbane this past Saturday, but both are facing potential six-month suspensions in defeat.

The UFC, which acted as its own sanctioning body for the Australian event, released a list of medical suspensions to MixedMartialArts.com on Thursday.

Mir, who suffered a first-round knockout loss to Mark Hunt in the evening’s main event, must be cleared with a head and neck CT scan or be sidelined for 180 days. At a minimum, the former heavyweight king cannot fight for 45 days, with 30 days of no contact.

Lombard, meanwhile, absorbed a tremendous amount of punishment in the second round of his bout against Neil Magny in the co-headliner before falling via TKO 46 seconds into the third stanza of their welterweight bout. “Showeather” must be cleared by a head CT scan before he can compete. Like Mir, he cannot fight for a minimum of 45 days, with 30 days of no contact.

Five other fighters from the card are also facing possible six-month layoffs: Antonio Carlos Jr. (needs ENT clearance); James Te Huna (head); Alan Jouban (left elbow); Richard Walsh (right forearm) and Chad Laprise (right hand). UFC Fight Night Brisbane Medical Suspensions:
