UFC 274 medical suspensions: Tony Ferguson receives 60 days after brutal knockout loss

Ferguson was finished with a front kick to the jaw and must sit out for the next two months. 

Tony Ferguson has received a 60-day medical suspension following his second-round knockout loss to Michael Chandler at UFC 274 this past Saturday.

The Arizona Boxing and MMA Commission regulated the event held at Footprint Center in Phoenix, AZ., and has suspended 17 fighters, including Ferguson. The former UFC interim lightweight champion was finished with a brutal front kick to the jaw. ‘El Cucuy’ remained on the canvas for several minutes before leaving the Octagon under his own power and being transported to a local hospital, where he returned a negative CT scan.

Cameron VanCamp has also received a 60-day medical suspension. The UFC newcomer suffered a first-round knockout loss to André Fialho on the early preliminary portion of the card. The commission provided no further details beyond the length of these suspensions, so the reasons (ex. potential injury) for them are unknown.
