UFC 206 medical suspensions: Cub Swanson, Doo Ho Choi out 60 days after classic brawl

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

After putting on an electrifying ‘Fight of the Year' contender, UFC featherweights Cub Swanson and Doo Ho Choi led a list of six fighters to receive extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC 206. The Ontario Athletic Commission released the event's medical suspension list on Wednesday.

Swanson defeated Choi via unanimous decision in a memorable back-and-forth brawl on the main card of UFC 206, which took place Dec. 10 and aired live on pay-per-view. Both men will now be required to sit out for a mandatory 60-day period in order to recover from damage sustained during the bout, per commission orders.

In addition to Swanson and Choi, four other fighters received similar 60-day medical suspensions: Anthony Pettis, Matt Brown, Tim Kennedy, and John Makdessi, all of whom lost via KO/TKO.

UFC 206 took place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Max Holloway defeated Pettis via third-round TKO to capture the interim UFC featherweight title in the night's main event.
