UFC 193 medical suspensions: Rousey could miss 6 months

At UFC 193 over the weekend, Holly Holm shocked the world when she scored a devastating knockout victory over superstar Ronda Rousey to claim the promotion’s women’s bantamweight title.

Holm not only was victorious in Melbourne, she managed to outperform Rousey from the jump en route to a dominant win.

The headkick finish left Rousey unconscious on the mat, before she had to be transported to the hospital for undisclosed reconstructive surgery on her face.

Now, we know just how long the former champ could be forced to miss.

On Tuesday, the UFC 193 medical suspensions were released by the UFC, who oversaw the event with the absence of an athletic commission, on MixedMartialArts.com.

You can see the full list of medical suspensions below which includes potential six-month bans for Rousey and the two participants in the co-main event, strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejcyk and Valerie Letourneau.
