UFC Fight Night 128 medical suspensions: Edson Barboza suspended indefinitely pending CT scan


Veteran lightweight Edson Barboza nearly turned the tides against Kevin Lee, but he eventually was forced out of an exciting headliner at UFC Fight Night 128.

Now, Barboza (19-6 MMA, 13-6 UFC) is suspended indefinitely – pending doctor’s clearance – for the damage he took at this past Saturday’s event, which took place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., and aired live on FS1.

MMAjunkie recently requested and received a list of medical suspensions from the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, which regulated the fight card.

Lee (17-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC), who took home a fifth round TKO via doctor’s stoppage, is out for 30 days with no contact during training – no doubt the result of the brutal head kick that sent him stumbling in the third round.

Eighteen fighters were medically suspended, including 10 who were suspended indefinitely pending doctor’s clearance.
