UFC veteran Yushin Okami didn’t appear to have much choice in the matter, but his lack of tap against Ovince Saint Preux brings a 45-day suspension.

The UFC has released medical suspensions stemming from UFC Fight Night 117 to Association of Boxing Commissions record keeper mixedmartialarts.com, which forwarded them to MMAjunkie.

UFC Fight Night 117 took place this past Saturday at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event’s main card and prelims aired live on FXX.

According to the notes describing the medical suspensions, Okami’s (34-11 MMA, 13-6 UFC) term is “due to no tap on choke.” The Japanese fighter was put to sleep by Saint Preux (21-10 MMA, 9-5) in the first round with a Von Flue choke, the third such finish for Saint Preux.

All fighters on the card received a mandatory 7-day suspension, though several were given longer terms for more serious injuries. Daichi Abe (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Hyun Gyu Lim (13-7-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC), who led off the card with a spirited three-round fight, both wound up with 180-day suspensions for various injuries.

The list of suspensions longer than the mandatory minimum include:

  • Yushin Okami: Suspended 45 days due to no tap on choke, leaving him unconscious, with 30 days no contact.
  • Jessica Andrade: Suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact for forehead laceration.
  • Claudia Gadelha: Suspended 45 days for right eyebrow laceration; head CT scan was negative.
  • Takanori Gomi: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO.
  • Henrique da Silva: Suspended 60 days with 45 days no contact for knockout.
  • Teruto Ishihara: Suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact.
  • Rolando Dy: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact.
  • Keita Nakamura: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact; head CT scan was negative.
  • Alex Morono: Suspended 180 days or until cleared by X-ray for right hand, and suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact for right eyebrow laceration.
  • Chan-Mi Jeon: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact.
  • Shinsho Anzai: Suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact.
  • Luke Juneau: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for right eyebrow laceration.
  • Daichi Abe: Suspended 180 days or until cleared by maxillofacial surgeon, and suspended minimum 45 days with 30 days no contact.
  • Hyun Gyu Lim: Suspended 180 days or until cleared by ophthalmologist, and suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for nasal laceration.
