The Nevada Athletic Commission released the medical suspensions stemming from UFC 182, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Jan. 3. Four fighters from the card face up to a six-month suspension.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defended his belt against Daniel Cormier in the night’s main event. Cormier faces a three-week medical suspension, while Jones was issued no medically related time off.
Jones, however, has since landed in a firestorm of controversy over a failed Dec. 4 out-of-competition drug test, for which he tested positive for the main metabolite for cocaine.
