UFC 271 medical suspensions: Derrick Lewis receives two-month term after KO loss

Lewis was stopped by Tai Tuivasa in the co-main event of UFC 271.

Derrick Lewis has been given a two-month suspension by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) after his second-round knockout loss to Tai Tuivasa in the co-main event of UFC 271 this past Saturday.

Joining Lewis are Marcelo Rojo and Maxim Grishin, two preliminary fighters who were suspended indefinitely by the TDLR. Rojo was submitted via third-round rear-naked choke by Kyler Phillips, while Grishin earned a unanimous decision win over William Knight. The TDLR does not provide details of any potential injuries, so the reason behind these terms is unknown.

The rest of the fighters, including headliners Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker, received relatively light suspensions.
