UFC flyweight Paige VanZant highlighted a list of four fighters to receive medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC St. Louis, according to information released to MMA Fighting on Friday by the Missouri Office of Athletics.

VanZant suffered a broken arm midway through her co-main event fight against Jessica-Rose Clark — a fight which VanZant ultimately lost via unanimous decision. As a result of damage sustained in the contest, VanZant will be required to seek physician clearance on her right hand/arm or be forced to sit out indefinitely before returning to active competition, per Missouri officials.

The three other fighters who received medical suspensions were: Matt Frevola (60 days), Doo Ho Choi (30 days), and Emil Meek (30 days).

UFC St. Louis took place Jan. 14 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The night’s main card aired live on FOX Sports 1.

  • Paige VanZant: Suspended indefinitely, requires right hand to be cleared by physician
