UFC 232 medical suspensions: Andrei Arlovski among five facing six-month sits

Several fighters from the UFC’s year-end pay-per-view could see extended time on the sidelines for injuries suffered in their bouts.

Five athletes are facing potential six-month sits unless doctors clear them early after UFC 232, according to the event info released by the California State Athletic Commission and first reported by MMAFighting.com.

Among those suspended for 180 days is former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski (27-18 MMA, 16-12 UFC), who lost a split decision to Walt Harris (12-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) to close out the prelims. Harris faces a potential 180-day suspension, as well. Harris needs a potential left knee fracture cleared before he can return sooner; Arlovski needs to be cleared for a possible broken nose.

UFC 232 took place Dec. 29 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Other fighters facing potential six-month sits are Douglas Silva de Andrade (25-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) after his TKO loss to Petr Yan; and Curtis Millender (17-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Siyar Bahadurzada (24-7-1 MMA, 4-3 UFC), who fought each other on the prelims in a bout won by Millender by unanimous decision.
