UFC Sacramento medical suspensions: 5 fighters face possible six-month suspensions

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Sacramento-Vettori vs Ferreira Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Five fighters from this past weekend’s UFC Fight Night card in Sacramento could be looking at six-month medical suspensions courtesy of the California State Athletic Commission.

On Monday, the commission revealed the medical suspension from the card headlined by Germaine de Randamie’s 16-second knockout against Aspen Ladd.

Returning middleweight Marvin Vettori was handed a potential 180-day (six months) suspension due a possible facture of his right finger, mid sternum and right knee that requires medical clearance from a physician before he can compete again. Vettori received a seven-day mandatory suspension following his win.

His opponent Cezar Ferreira also received a potential six-month term due to a possible fracture of his left foot and nose. He also received a potential 60 day suspension for a laceration on his nose. Ferreira will need clearance from a physician to compete prior to those dates.

Mike Rodriguez received a seven-day mandatory suspension along with 45 days no contest and 30 days of no contact due to a hard fight. He also faces a potential 180-day (six months) suspension for a possible fracture to his orbital bone that requires a CAT scan.

Sheymon Moraes faces a potential 180-day (six months) suspension that will require a physician’s clearance due to a possible fracture to his right foot and nose.

Finally, Jonathan Martinez will require a physician’s clearance to return ahead of his 180-day (six months) suspension due to a possible fracture to his right shoulder and left foot.
