Bellator 192 medical suspensions: Rory MacDonald faces potential six months for gnarly leg

The “person growing inside” new Bellator welterweight champ Rory MacDonald could keep him benched for six months.

MacDonald (20-4 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) joked about a gruesome injury to his right leg after outpointing Douglas Lima (29-7 MMA, 11-3 BMMA) to win the belt at Bellator 192. But he also suffered a potentially broken hand. And unless he gets a doctor’s clearance, his time off will be no laughing matter.

MMAjunkie today requested and received a list of medical suspensions stemming from this past Saturday’s event, which took place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The event’s main card aired live on Paramount before prelims on MMAjunkie.com.

Three other fighters drew potential six month suspensions: Shane Kruchten (12-4 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) possibly suffered a fractured right foot after a first-round TKO loss to Aaron Pico (2-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA); Georgi Karakhanyan (27-8-1 MMA, 6-6 BMMA) could have a fractured right hand after a decision loss to Henry Corrales (15-3 MMA, 3-3 BMMA); and James Barnes (9-3 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) needs doctor clearance with a left shoulder injury after a loss to Chad George (17-8 MMA, 2-0 BMMA).

  • Chael Sonnen: mandatory seven day suspension
