Rousey Among Six Fighters Given 180 Day Medical Suspension

Following UFC 193 in Melbourne, six fighters have been given 180 day medical suspensions, including Ronda Rousey, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Valerie Letourneau.

Rousey was knocked out by Holly Holm in the main event on Saturday, and now faces up to 180 days on the sidelines pending a negative head CT scan.

Jedrzejczyk suffered a broken hand during her strawweight title defense against Valerie Letourneau, and will only be allowed to return before the 180 days are up if she has medical clearance for the injury. Letourneau also requires a negative head CT scan if she is to return early.
