UFC 247 medical suspensions: Champ Valentina Shevchenko among longest terms

A nearly flawless performance didn’t keep UFC flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko from a substantial medical suspension.

Shevchenko has drawn a six-month term following her third-round TKO of Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 247, according to suspensions posted by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

The TDLR does not disclose details about medical suspensions, so it’s impossible to know whether Shevchenko can be cleared early by a doctor. However, that is almost always the case for longer suspensions. The commission requires a mandatory 10-day term of all combatants.

Headliners Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes battled until the final minute of their five-round title fight, but they escaped with modest 31-day suspensions.

Here’s the full list of suspensions from UFC 247:

Jon Jones: suspended until March 10.

Dominick Reyes: suspended until March 10.

Valentina Shevchenko: suspended until Aug. 7.

Katlyn Chookagian: suspended until March 25.

Justin Tafa: suspended until April 9.

Ilir Latifi: suspended until March 10.

Trevin Giles: suspended until Feb. 18.

James Krause: suspended until March 10.

Lauren Murphy: suspended until March 10.
