The Medical Suspensions For UFC FIGHT NIGHT: SMITH VS. RAKIC Has Been Released

UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Rakic is now in the record books and the medical suspensions for the latest UFC show has been released. Check out the full list of UFC fighters who are affected by the rulings.

The latest medical suspensions have been released.

We’re coming off UFC on ESPN+ 33 that saw Aleksandar Rakic dominate Anthony Smith in a three-round main event. The former UFC Light Heavyweight has received a 45-day suspension with no contact for 30 days. On the other hand, Rakic is free to resume training and could actually take a fight anytime soon as the light heavyweight is cleared to compete.

In the co-main event, Robbie Lawler suffered another big loss against Neil Magny. Both men have received medical suspensions for 45 days, though for different reasons.

Mallory Martin, Ji Yeon Kim, and Polyana Viana have the longest suspensions as all three women can't fight until February. However, should Martin, Kim, and Viana get clearance from their respective doctors then they’ll be able to get into the octagon sooner than later.
