UFC on FX 6 Medical Suspensions

UFC on FX 6The UFC has released the medical suspensions for last Friday’s UFC on FX 6 fight card. All fighters on the card were suspended for twenty-one days for precautionary reasons. Seven fighters also received additional suspensions of six months, including featherweight contender Chad Mendes.

In lieu of an athletic commission, the UFC handled the issuing of suspensions and drug testing as they usually do. UFC VP of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner, who is the former executive director of NSAC, oversaw the administration of the testing.
