UFC 292 medical suspensions: Aljamain Sterling benched with Sean O’Malley loss, Chris Weidman needs clearance


Now-former UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling was issued a short medical suspension for his TKO loss to Sean O’Malley in the main event of UFC 292.

A brow laceration drew a 30-day term for “Funkmaster,” who was also ordered to avoid contact for 45 days following his knockout loss in the second round of the pay-per-view on Aug. 19 at TD Garden. With the knockout, O’Malley claimed the UFC bantamweight title.

In other notable suspensions, ex-middleweight champ Chris Weidman’s reported knee injuries were backed up by a 60-day term issued by the commission for his left knee following a decision loss to Brad Tavares on the preliminary card.

The medical suspensions were revealed to MMA Fighting via a public records request through the Massachusetts Office of Public Safety and Inspections, which oversees the state’s athletic commission.
