UFC Fight Night 70 main eventer Lyoto Machida not only had his run back into title contention derailed on Saturday night, he also received an indefinite suspension.
Yoel Romero took Machida down in the third round and quickly finished him with a series of heavy elbows to the head. That led to the Florida State Boxing Commission issuing the suspension and ordering Machida to undergo a CT Scan and get medical clearance before he can fight again.
