UFC 165 Medical Suspensions: Jones and Gustafsson Pick up 60 Day Suspensions


By FCF Staff

Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson engaged in one of the sport’s most brutal and entertaining wars in recent memory at UFC 165, and the two light-heavyweights have earned medical suspensions as a result.

According to multiple reports, the Office of the Athletics Commissioner of Ontario has suspended Jones and Gustafsson for 60 days. Jones needs to receive a CT scan or MRI before he returns to action, as well as another x-ray.

Gustafsson, meanwhile, also needs to receive a MRI and CT scan before he can fight again.

Other competitors that picked up lengthier medical suspensions included bantamweight Eddie Wineland, Renee Forte, Chris Clements and Nandor Guelmino. All of the fighters will need to receive a CT scan and MRI before competing.

UFC 165 was hosted by Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. Jones defended the light-heavyweight championship via unanimous decision.
