It should come as no surprise that Calvin Kattar received one of the longest medical suspensions following UFC on ABC 1.
Kattar is facing a potential 180-day layoff following a lopsided five-round defeat to Max Holloway in Saturday’s featherweight headliner at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. “The Boston Finisher” must receive doctor clearance on his nose to have that term reduced. At a minimum, Kattar is suspended 60 days with 45 days of no contact. Holloway, meanwhile, is suspended 30 days with 21 days of no contact.
The UFC, which served as its own regulating body for the event, released a full list of medical suspensions to mixedmartialarts.com on Monday. Everyone on the card received at least a seven-day mandatory suspension.
Justin Tafa was the only other fighter to receive a potential 180-day suspension, as he needs a negative left-thumb X-ray to be cleared following a loss to Carlos Felipe at heavyweight.
