UFC 274 medical suspensions: Tony Ferguson hit with extended sit following knockout loss


UFC 274 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Oliveira vs. Gaethje”-led event this past weekend (Sat., May 7, 2022) from inside Footprint Center in Phoenix, Ariz., have been obtained by MMA Fighting.

Unsurprisingly, leading the way in mandated medical sits is Tony Ferguson, who will be sidelined for at least the next two months following a devastating knockout loss at the hands foot of Michael Chandler (highlights).

Here is the full list of medical suspension from UFC 274:

  • Charles Oliveira – 30 days
  • Justin Gaethje – 30 days
  • Tony Ferguson – 60 days for KO
  • Michael Chandler – 30 days
  • Ovince Saint-Preux – 30 days
  • Mauricio Rua – 30 days
  • Francisco Trinaldo – 30 days
  • Danny Roberts – 45 days
  • Blagoy Ivanov – 30 days
  • Cameron VanCamp – 60 days for knockout
  • Melissa Gatto – 30 days
  • C.J. Vergara – 30 days
  • Kleydson Rodrigues – 45 days
  • Marcos Rogerio de Lima – 30 days
  • Ariane Carnelossi – 30 days
  • Journey Newson – 30 days
  • Fernie Garcia – 30 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.
