UFC Fight Night: Blaydes v Daukaus Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC

Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) recently handed down its list of injuries and medical suspension for those athletes competing at the UFC Columbus mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sat. night (March 26, 2022) inside Nationwide Arena on both ESPN+ and ESPN.

A good portion of the card was able to escape “The Buckeye State” without any timeouts; however, event headliner Curtis Blaydes has been sat until further notice as a result of a bum foot. Similarly, Marc Diakiese and Viacheslav Borshchev were also handed indefinite 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.
