UFC 175 medical suspensions: Rousey, Weidman could be out until 2015


Following this past weekend’s event, the UFC could be without two of their top champions until early next year thanks to the UFC 175 medical suspensions.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission announced the suspensions, and both middleweight champion Chris Weidman and women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey are going to be out of action until Jan. 2, 2015 unless they are cleared earlier by a medical professional.

Weidman is dealing with a number of injuries to multiple parts of his body, while Rousey suffered a right hand injury.

That obviously wipes out any chances that “the guys in the truck” will get their wish of a Rousey fight headlining UFC 176.

You can see the full list of medical suspensions below, via the UG:

Chris Weidman: Suspended until Jan. 2 , 2015, because of possible left jaw, right elbow, right ribs and right ankle injuries (need x-rays) unless an orthopedic doctor clears him to return sooner. Minimum suspension (and no contest) until Aug. 20, 2014, and no contact until Aug. 5, 2014.

Lyoto Machida: Suspended until Sept. 4, 2014, and no contact until Aug. 20, 2014, because of a facial laceration.
