Hand Injury Spells Long Suspension For Greg Hardy

When the UFC is out of the country, sometimes the governing bodies take a while to come out with their list of medical suspensions. In the case of October’s UFC Moscow event there was no governing body. So it's up to the UFC to hand down their suspensions internally with assistance from their medical team. 

One name of note from the event in Russia is the controversial Greg Hardy. The often discussed heavyweight stepped into the bout with Alexander Volkov on short notice with a chance to move quickly up the division. In addition to being unsuccessful in a unanimous decision loss, Hardy also seemed to suffer a hand injury early on in the fight. The post-fight suspensions support that as Hardy was handed a 180-day suspension, tied for the longest on the card. So while Hardy may have rushed back into the cage as quickly as he could for this bout, it appears it’ll be some time before we will see him again - although he can be cleared earlier with a negative x-ray.

Cody Stamann: No Respect For Champ Cejudo

Since capturing his fight title, and even more so after winning his second, Henry Cejudo has turned up the theatrics. From calling for a fight with Valentina Shevchenko to cringe-worthy videos promoting himself as “Triple C”, his push to get more attention for himself has certainly been successful.

Dominick Reyes Is Ready For Jon Jones

After 27 fights by which he is functionally still undefeated (yes, I realize he has a loss on his record), we’ve heard pretty much everything when it comes to why this challenger will be the one. Especially since he’s become champ, it seems like every challenger that pops up has something that fans who want to see Jones go down latch on to and others write off.
