UFC Prague medical suspension; Jan Blachowicz gets six-months

The Octagon touched down in the Czech Republic for the first time in company history on Saturday for UFC Prague. The card was headlined by an important light heavyweight fight between two top contenders in Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos. Ultimately, Santos defeated Blachowicz by TKO in the third round to possibly become the next title challenger.

Meanwhile, Petr Yan had yet another standout performance in a decision win over John Dodson. While in the co-main event, Stefan Struve snapped his three-fight losing streak and announced his retirement from MMA. In the end, it was a great night of fights that had some highlight reel finishes, and some fights that went the distance. With that, it caused several fighters to be medically suspended.

Here are the UFC Prague medical suspensions. (via MMAJunkie)
