UFC 214 medical suspensions and injuries: Drew Dober penalized for weight class violation

MMA: UFC 206 Weigh Ins Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 214 injuries and medical suspensions for those athletes competing at the “Cormier vs. Jones 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (July 29, 2017) from inside Honda Center in Anaheim, were released on Monday by California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is welterweight “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone, who racked up several weeks of mandatory vacation after getting mugged and slugged by “Ruthless” 170-pound slugger Robbie Lawler (video).

In addition, Drew Dober regained more than 10-percent of allowable weight following the UFC 214 weigh ins and could be forced to move up a division after last weekend’s knockout win over Josh Burkman (watch it).

All fighters received a minimum seven-day suspension, while select combatants were benched even longer for injuries sustained on fight night.

Full list of UFC 214 medical suspensions include:

Donald Cerrone: Potential suspension of 180 days no contest, 180 days no contact due to possible fracture to left eye (traumatic myosis), must be cleared by physician to return sooner; seven day mandatory suspension

Renato Moicano: Potential suspension of 180 days no contest, 180 days no contact due to possible fracture to facial/jaw, must be cleared by physician to return sooner; seven day mandatory suspension

Alexandra Albu: Potential suspension of 180 days no contest, 180 days no contact due to possible fracture to left orbital, must be cleared by physician and pass CT scan to return sooner; potential suspension of 60 days no contest, 60 days no contact due to laceration to nose, must be cleared by physician to return sooner; suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to hard bout; seven day mandatory suspension

Daniel Cormier: Potential suspension of 60 days no contest, 60 days no contact due to laceration to right eye, must be cleared by neurologist to return sooner; suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to KO loss; seven day mandatory suspension

Jimi Manuwa: Potential suspension of 60 days no contest, 60 days no contact due to laceration to right eyebrow, must be cleared by physician to return sooner; suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to KO loss; seven day mandatory suspension

Andre Fili: Potential suspension of 60 days no contest, 60 days no contact due to laceration to right upper eyelid, must be cleared by physician to return sooner; seven day mandatory suspension

Tonya Evinger: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to TKO loss; seven day mandatory suspension

Jason Knight: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to TKO loss; seven day mandatory suspension

Kailin Curran: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exception due to hard bout; seven day mandatory suspension

Drew Dober: Seven day mandatory suspension; fighter must be cleared by physician or must move up in weight due to greater than 18% weight increase, fighter needs to be in a heavier weight class per medical evaluation.

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.
