For some fighters, the after effects of from UFC 205 will continue for another while yet.

Several fighters, most notably Chris Weidman who suffered a brutal flying knee knockout loss to Yoel Romero which left a huge gash above his left eyebrow, have been issued with medical suspensions by the New York State Athletic Association on the back of damage sustained during last weekend’s event in New York City.

Weidman, the former Middleweight champion, has been suspended for a minimum of 60 days before he can compete again.

Eddie Alvarez, who lost his UFC Lightweight title to Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 205, has been handed a 30 day no-compete suspension.
