UFC 246 medical suspensions: Donald Cerrone broken orbital results in lengthy sit

Donald Cerrone lasted just 40 seconds with Conor McGregor at UFC 246 and in turn, has received a lengthy medical suspension.

In the main event of UFC 246, McGregor used shoulder strikes early which busted up “Cowboy’s” nose. He then landed a head kick and followed it up with vicious ground and pound to get the TKO win. The loss for Cerrone stings, but because of the injuries, he has been suspended six months.

Not only did Cerrone get a lengthy sit, but to no surprise, Maycee Barber is suspended for six months due to her ACL tear which she suffered in the second round of her loss to Roxanne Modafferi.
