UFC Atlantic City medical suspensions: Chris Weidman, Bruno Silva need doctor clearance

Ten fighters need doctor clearance to resume competition after UFC Atlantic City, including ex-middleweight champ Chris Weidman and Bruno Silva.

The middleweight competitors went to a technical decision after a replay revealed repeated eye pokes to Silva. As a result, Silva needs a doctor’s clearance for his eye after his loss on points to Weidman, who needs a CT scan to be cleared.

Main event winner Manon Fiorot also needs a doctor’s clearance after her shutout win over Erin Blanchfield. The France native was rushed to the hospital immediately after her win, which could set up a title shot in the flyweight division.

UFC Atlantic City took place this past Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., and aired live on ESPN.
