UFC 211 medical suspensions: Chas Skelly, Gabriel Benitez facing possible six-month sits

MMA: UFC 211-Skelly vs Knight Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 211 medical suspensions for those athletes competing at the “Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (May 13, 2017) from inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, were released on Monday by Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is featherweight “Scrapper” Chas Skelly, who may have suffered a broken arm in his technical knockout loss to Jason Knight on the FX-televised “Prelims.” Unfortunately, “The Lone Star State” doesn’t reveal the nature of the suspensions, which also sat Gabriel Benitez for six months.

Though we know Yair Rodriguez is sat for his exploding eye (see it).

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
