Kamaru Usman ruled out for six months after breaking his nose against Jorge Masvidal

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman might have to wait on the sidelines for a lengthy period of time due to a medical suspension that was initially expected to be for a smaller duration.

‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ suffered a broken nose as he retained his UFC welterweight title last weekend.

While those who saw the fight know thatUsman came out of the bout almost unscathed but he has been surprisingly been handed a 180-day medical suspension.

He will also be forced to avoid any contact for at least three weeks while the nose heals.

Meanwhile, Masvidal, will miss a month himself due to a forehead laceration sustained in his defeat.

Apart from Usman, Marcin Tybura, and Davey Grant who competed on the UFC 251 card were handed possible six-month suspensions.

Usman had been expected to next fight Gilbert Burns, his original opponent at UFC 251 before his positive test for coronavirus.
