UFC OKC medical suspensions: Herrig, Chiesa out 180-days

For some of the fighters, even the winners, UFC Fight Night 112 was a costly one. Medically speaking.

Headlined by a fun affair between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee, UFC Oklahoma City took no prisoners with 14 fighters being medically suspended after the event.

Out of the extensive list, 3 fighters were given the lengthy 180-day suspension. Felice Herrig, Tim Boetsch and Michael Chiesa were the unlucky UFC trio.
