UFC 223 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Khabib vs Iaquinta”- led mixed martial arts (MMA) event on pay-per-view (PPV) last Saturday night (April 7, 2018) from inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., were released earlier this week by New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is Al Iaquinta, who could spend the next two months on the bench after having his face busted up by Khabib Nurmagomedov in a five-round Lightweight championship bout that saw “The Eagle” dominate the bout for 25 minutes.

Kyle Bochniak will also join “Ragin’” following his three-round war against Zabit Magomedsharipov which saw them go back-and-forth in a thrilling “Fight of the Night” performance.

The full list of UFC 223 medical suspensions are as follows via MMA Fighting:

Khabib Nurmagomedov: 7-day medical suspension

Al Iaquinta: 60-day medical suspension

Rose Namajunas: 30-day medical suspension

Joanna Jedrzejczyk: 30-day medical suspension

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.
