UFC on ESPN 25 medical suspensions: Chan Sung Jung among seven facing six months

Chan Sung Jung is back in the win column but could be sidelined for up to six months after UFC on ESPN 25.

Jung defeated Dan Ige in a back-and-forth battle in the main event, but he needs his left shoulder checked out after he dislocated it in the fight.

On Tuesday, MMA Junkie acquired the full list of UFC on ESPN 25 medical suspensions handed out by the Nevada Athletic Commission from, the Association of Boxing Commission’s official record keeper.

Also suffering an arm injury in her fight was Kanako Murata, who was stopped by Virna Jandiroba in the second round. Murata’s elbow was dislocated in the first round after Jandiroba secured a deep armbar, but she refused to tap and fought the entire second round with a compromised arm. The cageside doctor eventually decided to stop the fight after Round 2 after seeing the condition of her arm.

Davey Grant, who was defeated by Marlon Vera in a “Fight of the Night” effort, also is potentially facing a 180-day term. Grant must have his nasal bone fracture cleared by a doctor before he can return to competition.

Rounding off the six-month suspension list is Dhiego Lima, who needs an MRI on his right knee; Matthew Semelsberger, who needs an X-ray on his nose; Josh Parisian, who needs his nasal fracture cleared; and Casey O’Neill, who needs an X-ray on her left hand.
