UFC on Fox 17 Medical Suspensions: Donald Cerrone out 45 days due to TKO loss against Rafael dos Anjos

Only six fighters received medical suspensions this week out of Saturday’s UFC on Fox 17 event.

The Florida State Boxing Commission suspended Donald Cerrone, Junior dos Santos, C.B. Dollaway, Josh Samman, Cole Miller, and Luis Henrique for issues stemming from the event in Orlando, with only Miller potentially out more than 90 days. The featherweight is out indefinitely after a nasty eye poke injured his left eye and brought an unfortunately early end to his fight with Jim Alers.

Cerrone, dos Santos, Dollaway, and Henrique each received their suspensions due to stoppage losses by strikes on the card. The full list of medical suspensions out of the event is below (via MMAJunkie.com):

Donald Cerrone: suspended 45 days for TKO loss
