UFC on ESPN 2 injuries, medical suspensions: Paul Craig, Jessica Aguilar suspended indefinitely

UFC on ESPN 2 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Barboza vs Gaethje” event on Saturday (March 30, 2019) in Philadelphia, PA have been released by The Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission earlier today (April 1. 2019).

Paul Craig was suspended indefinitely and will have to get a doctor’s clearance before he returns to action following his win over Kennedy Nzechukwu (highlights). Jessica Aguilar was also handed the same suspension after she lost to Marina Rodriguez.

Furthermore, despite getting knocked out rather violently, Edson Barboza and Michael Johnson were handed 90 and 60 days mandatory sits, respectively. Take a look at the rest of the medical suspensions below (via MMA Fighting).

Paul Craig: Suspended indefinitely, requires doctor’s clearance

Jessica Aguilar: Suspended indefinitely, requires doctor’s clearance

Edson Barboza: Suspended 90 days

Michael Johnson: Suspended 60 days

Josh Emmett: Suspended 45 days

Marina Rodriguez: Suspended 45 days

Ross Pearson: Suspended 45 days

Sabina Mazo: Suspended 45 days

Justin Gaethje: Suspended 30 days

Kennedy Nzechukwu: Suspended 30 days

Sodiq Yusuff: Suspended 30 days

Sheymon Moraes: Suspended 30 days

Enrique Barzola: Suspended 30 days

Ray Borg: Suspended 30 days

Alex Perez: Suspended 30 days

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.
