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.
