Medical Suspensions Handed Out For UFC 246, Donald Cerrone Comes Off Worse With Nose And Orbital Fractures

Donald Cerrone is facing a six-month medical suspension after his devastating defeat to Conor McGregor at UFC 246.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) have released their medical suspensions for last weekend's event in Las Vegas.

And 'Cowboy' has come off worse as the veteran American could be out of action for six months after suffering a broken nose and orbital fracture in his 40 second defeat to McGregor.
