UFC 236 Medical Suspensions: Max Holloway, Kelvin Gastelum Facing Indefinite Terms

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 15, 2019


Max Holloway and Kelvin Gastelum absorbed incredible amounts of punishment in their respective title bouts at UFC 236, and as a result, both are facing indefinite medical suspensions.

The Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission on Monday released a full list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta this past Saturday night.

Holloway, who was battered and rocked repeatedly in a decision loss to Dustin Poirier in the evening’s headliner, is sidelined indefinitely pending CT scan results. At a minimum he will be out for 45 days. Poirier, the newly crowned interim lightweight champion, also received a 45-day sit.

Gastelum, meanwhile, also needs CT scan results to lift his indefinite suspension following a five-round loss to Israel Adesanya for the interim middleweight belt in the co-main event. Gastelum received a mandatory 60-day suspension, while Adesanya got a 45-day term.

Three fighters from the UFC 236 card are facing potential 6-month layoffs: Dwight Grant (right distal bicep), Jalin Turner (right knee) and Wilson Reis (left foot).
