Amanda Nunes gets 6 months medical suspension following UFC 224

img

news that UFC 224 was the lowest selling PPV for the UFC in the past decade, wasn’t the only disappointing news from the event.  It now appears as if fans hoping to see Cris Cyborg V Amanda Nunes at the UFC 226 date that was targeted by Cyborg since her Dec. 30th victory over Holly Holm is no longer an option.

Cyborg who accepted a fight for UFC 222 against Yana Kunitskaya after Amanda Nunes turned down the fight, hoped to face Amanda Nunes July  7th during International Fight Week, promoting the event date since her Dec. 30th victory over Holly Holm.  Nunes who chose to fight at UFC 224 against Raquel Pennington instead of accepting the July fight with Cyborg has now been given a 6 month medical suspension due to an injury she sustained at UFC 224.

Cyborg had a similar scenario last year when Germaine De Randamie was sidelined for several months with a hand injury before the UFC finally moved on with booking Cyborg against another opponent.  Hopefully the UFC will be pro-active and fly Amanda Nunes to Las Vegas for medical treatment and an injury update.  Moving forward, Cyborg has said that if Amanda Nunes is injured and unable to fight July 7th at UFC 226 that she will face the winner of Megan Anderson V Holly Holm and allow Nunes time she needs for a recovery willing to accept the matchup next year when Nunes is healthy.
