jimi-manuwa-7.jpgJimi Manuwa and Ryan Jimmo each could be on the shelf as long as six months following their main-card fight at UFC Fight Night 30 this past week.

Manuwa beat Jimmo by TKO in the second round when Jimmo fell to the canvas with an apparent leg injury. The injury came just moments after Manuwa landed a knee to Jimmo’s head. Before Manuwa could move in after Jimmo fell to his back, the fight was called off.

Jimmo was issued a medical suspension of 30 days with 21 days of no contact. In addition, the Canadian light heavyweight was given a 180-day suspension unless he is cleared earlier by a doctor for his right ankle, which apparently was what he injured backing up following Manuwa’s knee.

But Manuwa is right there in the same boat with Jimmo. The unbeaten Brit also was issued a medical suspension that potentially could hit six months unless he’s cleared by a doctor after an MRI on his left hand.

UFC officials on Friday clarified the two fighters’ suspension terms to MMAjunkie.com following an initial posting at MixedMartialArts.com that had Manuwa out for 180 days, but Jimmo out for just seven.

UFC Fight Night 30 took place Oct. 26 at Phones4u Arena in Manchester, England. The main card aired on FOX Sports 2 following prelims on Facebook.

England’s Rosi Sexton was given a 90-day suspension with 60 days of no contact following a brutal beating at the hands of Jessica Andrade. And 13 other fighters were given suspensions of 30 days, including main-event middleweight Mark Munoz, who was stopped by Lyoto Machida with a head kick in the first round.

All 24 fighters on the card received at minimum a seven-day suspension. The complete list of orders includes:

  • Lyoto Machida: suspended seven days with no contact
  • Mark Munoz: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact
  • Melvin Guillard: suspended seven days with no contact
  • Ross Pearson: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact
