UFC 237 Medical Suspensions: Namajunas, Silva Potentially Out for Six Months

By Cole Shelton May 13, 2019


Anderson Silva and Rose Namajunas are facing the potentially longest medical suspensions following their defeats at UFC 237.

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released a full list of medical suspensions from the event on Monday. UFC 237 took place on May 11 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Silva suffered a first-round TKO loss to Jared Cannonier, where the American attacked the 44-year-old’s legs before the Brazilian’s knee buckled and gave out in the opening stanza. The Brazilian dropped in pain and the fight was over. He is now suspended for 180 days, or if a physician clears him he will be suspended for only 45 days but 30 days with no contact.

Namajunas, meanwhile, was winning her main-event fight against Jessica Andrade before the Brazilian slammed the 26-year-old on her head and knocked her out at the 2:58 mark of round two. She, like Silva, has been suspended for six months, but if a neck MRI comes up clean she could return sooner.
