Jamahal Hill, Glover Teixeira receives 180-day medical suspensions by MMA Athletic Commission after frightful injuries at UFC 283

Following Saturday night’s UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) issued 180-day medical suspensions to a number of competitors including Jamahal Hill and Glover Teixeira.

However, a significant number of boxers received suspensions of less than 180 days due to minor injuries.

Earlier, at UFC 283, eleven players had to endure a 180-day medical suspension due to some major injuries. Among them were Jamahal Hill, who defeated him by a decision to win the vacant UFC light heavyweight title, and Glover Teixeira, who said his final farewell to his fans and retired last night.

Both of the following fighters injured themselves with nasal fractures and broken noses. Cody Stamman, Ihor Potieria, Josiane Nunes, and Nicolas Dalby are also on the list of players who have been suspended for 180 days due to arm injuries. 

Deiveson Figueiredo was given 180 days and cleared by a facial CT scan, which suspended the mandatory 45-day sentence. The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) is the organization behind all the reports and calls. Despite the fact that the suspensions are only for six months, there is no guarantee of recovery from the injuries in the given time being. 

A majority of fighters got 14 days’ detention due to minor injuries compared to others. The list of 14-day medical suspensions for MMA competitors is as follows: Brandon Moreno, Gilbert Burns, Neil Magny, Jessica Andrade, Johnny Walker, Mauricio Rua, Brunno Ferreira, Thiago Moises, Gabriel Bonfim, Jailton Almeida, Luan Lacerda, Ismael Bonfim, and Daniel Marcos. Besides these names, a few fighters faced 45 and 60 days of medical detention.

On Sunday night’s UFC 283, Jamahal Hill won the title of UFC light heavyweight by defeating Glover Teixeira, who played his last match in the octagon. The following night was a tear-sheding experience for some Brazilian MMA fans due to the retirement of two of the best Brazilian UFC fighters, including Shogun Rua. Glover Teixeira and Shogun Rua retired from the sport at the ages of 43 and 41, respectively.
