UFC 255 medical suspensions: Joaquin Buckley needs clearance to avoid 6-month layoff

Buckley is among nine fighters who face long medical suspensions after this past Saturday’s pay-per-view event in Las Vegas, according to terms released by official ABC record keeper mixedmartialarts.com. If cleared, the suspensions will be removed from their records and they will be cleared to fight. Buckley picked up his second straight UFC knockout win in a fight against Jordan Wright, who succumbed to punches just 18 seconds into the second round of the preliminary-card meeting. Flyweight champion and UFC 255 headliner Deiveson Figueiredo notably avoided a suspension after a submission win over Alex Perez. That clears the way for a record turnaround when Figueiredo takes on Brandon Moreno at UFC 256 on Dec. 12. Here is the full list of medical suspensions from UFC 255: Alex Perez: needs X-Ray of right hand, if positive needs orthopedic doctor clearance or suspended until 05/21/21.
