Henry Cejudo Among 9 Fighters Suspended 180 Days After UFC 298

4 months ago By Jhon Woug

The result of the event on May 28 in Anaheim, California, showed that it was a night of war and bloodbath in which fighters fought wildly and clashed violently. The fight featured a stellar lineup of 12 fights involving 24 fighters who unleashed their counterparts on the canvas, where their muscles went through immense pressure while their bones shattered and their bodies, beyond the limits, straight into an arena!

Among the 39 referees and combatants who entered the ring that night, Henry Cejudo was the only one who was banned from the UFC for a whole six months. Since they presumed that the fracture of his left forearm was an incident that happened during his fight, Since he is known for his stubborn courage and focus on the goals, as demonstrated in past UFC victories, his failure could drag him into a long arousal of health and physical cover-up for Cejudo.

Cejudo was not the only one who faced the adverse effects of intense competition. In the same manner, Miranda Mover and Andrea Lochiar were also suspended for seven days in this thrilling match as part of the mandatory rest period. Yet short-term bouts of such symptoms are generally negligible in the grand scheme; however, they serve to remind us how a single bout of such symptoms can have highly undesirable effects on the body.

Oban Elliott and Val Woodburn, who were utterly subjected to gruelling battles that took out all of their abilities, were both judged with 60 days of penalization, and they could not be exempt from their first 30 days. They did not reveal the exact damages or injuries that they inflicted, but such injuries must not be ignored as they portray the intense physical nature of the sport. However, that does not overshadow the risks that fighters take as they chase their victory.

The second largely worrying element of UFC 298 was the high likelihood of fractures among many fighters. Danny Barlow, Mingyang Zhang, Carlos Vera, Marcos Rogerio de Lima, Mackenzie Dern, and Robert Whittaker are among those who have the future in the world of MMA at a high risk of cracking all over their bodies in different parts.

Instead of Barlow, who suffered from fracturing his left forearm and was suspended for 180 days, he too was awarded probation for 45 days for pleading guilty to engaging in a ferocious fight. The fate of Zhang is identical to that of Barlow because he also fractured his right hand, as a result of which a 180-day ban was imposed on him at the same time. However, while Vera’s working career will be put on hold temporarily, her shoulder problem is looking to be a severe one that might require over half a year of rest.

Both Dern and Whittaker have equally high outcomes and are facing the consequences. This time they could have both serious sports injuries—Dern may have fractured her left leg and Whittaker his hand—which will compromise their immediate sport achievements and long-term health as professional fighters.

For UFC 298, fighters such as Josh Quinlan, Brendson Ribeiro, Junior Tafa, and Paulo Costa have been placed on the injured reserve list after being hurt while in action. The possibility that a fight ends up with a TKO or a severe injury has always emphasised the physical and combative nature of MMA.

Even though the occurrence of injuries and suspensions was the main problem, athletes like Amanda Lemos, Anthony Hernandez, and Ilia Topuria succeeded in great victories. Although they were not winning, Lemos and Hernandez were suspended owing to the fact that their actions got too intense to harm themselves or their opponents, hence the intensity of their fights.

As a consequence of UFC 298, now the fighters battle with different opponents—their own bodies—while recovering from injuries inflicted by a fight of this level. Others may have a more difficult and long journey, while some people only have to deal with a few obstacles. At the end of an epic combat, dust will settle; each fighter’s path to the next fight appears completely different yet equally challenging.

Although they encounter difficulties in their ways, it is clear that the resilience of UFC fighters survives through tough times. The indestructible spirit that cannot be defeated typically resonates in the corner of the ring, both through the fighting itself and beyond the octagon.
