Blachowicz Draws Six-Month Sit For Battered Beak

The UFC Fight Night 145 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which aired last Sat. (Feb. 23, 2019) via ESPN+ from inside O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, is officially in the books, which means it’s time to wrap up some of the traditional post-fight business.

Like those pesky medical suspensions.

The promotion acted as its own regulatory body overseas and followed the existing blueprint established by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). All 26 fighters received mandatory seven-day timeouts, though some got a bit more.

Like event headliner, Jan Blachowicz.

Here is the full list of UFC Prague medical suspensions, as well as their corresponding injuries (via MMA Junkie):

  • Thiago Santos: suspended mandatory seven days

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
