UFC Fight Night Fortaleza Medicals: Bethe Correia, Tim Means Face Potential 180-Day Suspensions

By Jordan Breen Mar 13, 2017


Following Saturday night's UFC Fight Night “Belfort vs. Gastelum” card at the Northeast Olympic Training Center in Fortaleza, Brazil, both Tim Means and Bethe Correia are potentially facing six months on the shelf.

Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released a list of post-fight medical suspensions after the card, which was headlined by Kelvin Gastelum's first-round knockout of Vitor Belfort.

The 33-year-old Means was choked out in the second round of his rematch with “Cowboy” Alex Oliveira. “The Dirty Bird” will need to have his right foot cleared by a doctor, or else he faces 180 days of no competition and contact.

Correia, also 33, fought to a majority draw with Marion Reneau in which the former UFC women's bantamweight title challenger took considerable punishment from her opponent in the third round. In order to avoid her potential 180-day suspension, Correia will need medical clearance on her potentially fractured orbital bone (online betting).
