Stipe Miocic Gets 60 Days Following Knockout Loss – MMA Root



The awkward fall of Stipe Miocic when he was hit by Francis Nganu obviously will not keep him on the sidelines longer than normal.

Miocic received a 60-day medical suspension after Ngannou’s heavyweight crown crashed in the main event of UFC 260, according to mixedmartialarts.com. This suspension is typical for those who have been knocked out for precautionary reasons. Nganu, meanwhile, received a 30-day medical suspension.

UFC 260 took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Five fighters from the card face possible six-month suspensions pending medical clearance: Gillian Robertson (right hand), Jamie Mullarkey (right hand, wrist), Fabio Cherant (right side), Omar Morales (right tibia, thumb) and Shane Young (left tibia, fibrous).
