UFC
April 2, 2024
Ten fighters from UFC on ESPN 54 have been suspended indefinitely following Saturday’s card.

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board on Monday released a full list of medical suspensions from the event. UFC on ESPN 54 took place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and saw Manon Fiorot defeat Erin Blanchfield via unanimous decision in the evening’s flyweight main event.

Fiorot is one of the fighters facing an indefinite term, as she must have her right arm cleared by an orthopedic doctor befoe she can compete. At a minimum, the French standout is out 60 days with no contact. Blanchfield, meanwhile, is suspended 30 days due to facial lacerations.

Nine other fighters from UFC on ESPN 54 are also facing indefinite terms, which can be lifted through doctor clearance: Chris Weidman (needs head CT scan); Bruno Silva (left eye), Sedriques Dumas (right eye), Herbert Burns (needs neurologist clearance); Connor Matthews (needs neurologist clearance); Ibo Aslan (needs neurologist clearance); Anton Turkalj (needs neurologist clearance, tibia, fibia); Andre Petroski (needs head CT scan) and Angel Pacheco (left ankle).

Only five fighters from UFC on ESPN 54 received no type of medical suspension.
