UFC Fight Night 131 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Rivera vs Moraes”-led mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Fox Sports 1 last Friday night (June 1, 2018) from Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, New York were released earlier this week by New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts (courtesy of MMA Fighting) is Jimmie Rivera, who was tagged with a 90-day medical suspension following his 33-second knockout loss to Marlon Moraes in the main event of the evening.

Also joining “El Terror” on the three-month suspension list was Daniel Spitz who broke some bones after he went to war with Walt Harris. Check out the full list of UFC Fight Night 131 medical suspensions:

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.
