Despite completely dominating Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 247 for the UFC Women's Flyweight title, Valentina Shevchenko has been stamped with a six month medical suspension in the wake of her victory.
The term was dished out by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation and is substantially longer than the suspension handed to her opponent Chookagian, who will be able to compete again from March 25 onwards.
Other notable suspensions include both Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes being sidelined until March 10 after their epic Light Heavyweight title clash in the main event, while Derrick Lewis will be available to compete after February 18 - despite recently announcing that he is battling a 'life or death' issue.
Medical suspensions can be shortened if a fighter is able to be cleared by a doctor, so we could potentially see Shevchenko return to action earlier than August. No details have been disclosed as to why certain fighters have been given longer suspensions or as to what injuries have been suffered, but we're likely to hear more about the specific physical repercussions of the event in the coming weeks.
