“The Polar Bear” will be hibernating for a while after his defeat on Saturday.
UFC Fight Night 191 is in the books. The main event featured a 185-pound pivotal clash between Derek Brunson and Darren Till (18-4-1, 6-4-1 UFC) and ended with Brunson (23-7, 14-5 UFC) easily submitting “The Gorilla” with a rear-naked choke in the third frame. The Nevada State Athletic Commission (via mixedmartialarts.com) has now announced the official suspensions, revealing that the Team Kaobon export is facing a 30-day suspension and must have a facial CT scan that, if positive, must have ENT clearance. Brunson, on the other hand, has to stay off the fighting canvas for 21 days.
The co-main event saw up-and-coming English heavyweight contender Tom Aspinall (11-2, 4-0 UFC) stopping Sergey Spivak (13-3, 4-3 UFC) with punches early in Round 1. Somewhere during the clash, Spivak suffered an eyebrow laceration that would prevent him from getting clearance to compete for a while. The Moldovan fighter will have to stay put for 60 days.
