UFC 237 medical suspensions: Rose Namajunas, Anderson Silva facing potential six-month orders

Former champions Rose Namajunas and Anderson Silva are each facing potential 180-day suspensions following Saturday’s UFC 237 event.

Strawweight Namajunas (8-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) needs to have her neck examined and cleared following her second-round knockout loss to new titleholder Jessica Andrade (20-6 MMA, 11-4 UFC), while middleweight Silva (34-10 MMA, 17-6 UFC) must have his right knee cleared after suffering a TKO loss to Jared Cannonier (12-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC).

Main-card winner Laureano Staropoli and loser Bethe Correia are also facing potential six-month orders from the Brazilian athletic commission (CABMMA) following Saturday’s event from Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Staropoli (9-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) must have his nose examined after his win over Thiago Alves (23-14 MMA, 15-11 UFC), while Correia (10-3-1 MMA, 4-3-1 UFC) and her right elbow proved a concern following her submission loss to Irene Aldana (10-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

Every fighter on the card received a minimum of a mandatory 14-day suspension, including seven days of no contact.
