UFC 250 injuries, medical suspensions: Amanda Nunes, Felicia Spencer face six-month sits

UFC 250 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Nunes vs Spencer”-led event this past weekend (Sat., June 6, 2020) from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, have been released by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Leading the way in mandatory sits are event headliners Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer, who went to battle for a full 25 minutes (see it here). In the end, Nunes won a lopsided unanimous decision to retain her Featherweight strap. She didn’t escape unscathed, though, as she has to get an x-ray to make sure she didn’t fracture her right fibula.

Spencer, meanwhile, suffered a a broken orbital and nasal fracture after the five-round beatdown. One many felt should’ve been stopped sooner by “Feenom’s” corner despite her valiant effort.

Here is the complete list of injuries and suspensions (via MMA Fighting).

Amanda Nunes: needs X-ray of right tibia/fibula – if broken, needs orthopedic doctor clearance or suspended until Dec. 4; suspended at a minimum until July 7 with no contact until June 28.

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.
