Rousey medical suspension, Returns Home From Hospital

After experiencing¬†her first loss as a professional mixed martial artist and losing the UFC women’s bantamweight title, Ronda Rousey has been given a 180-day medical suspension.

According to officials with the UFO, Rousey (12-1) was knocked out in dramatic fashion by Holly Holm (10-0) at UFC 193 on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.

The UFC acted as it’s own governing body for the event due to a lack of a sanctioning organization in Australia and released the entire card’s medical suspension information to record and suspension keepers for the Association of Boxing Commissions,¬†MMA LLC.

Rousey’s suspension could be lifted pending a negative CT scan, reports ESPN.

The 28-year-old was taken to hospital after the fight where she was seen by a plastic surgeon regarding the horrific facial injuries she suffered, but after staying overnight it was confirmed that she had not suffered a concussion or any other serious injuries other than a nasty gash to her lip.

Five other fighters were also given six-month medical suspensions, including strawweight champion Joanna Jedzrejczyk, who fractured her hand in her title defence over Canadian Valerie Letourneau.
