Davi Ramos    UFC    Lightweight
Ramos received a medical suspension of 180 days from the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night win over Chris Gruetzemacher on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ramos gained his first UFC win with a rear-naked choke over Gruetzemacher. While he did well in the first and last frames, he did give up some ground in the second. However, Ramos had the grappling advantage and was able to clamp on the RNC after taking the back in a scramble during the third round. He came away with the win and a potential fracture to his left tibia. The CSAC gave him 180 days off unless he's cleared earlier by a physician. Other fighters given long medical suspensions pending clearance include Gabriel Benitez, Marlon Moraes, Scott Holtzman and Benito Lopez.
Benito Lopez    UFC    Bantamweight
Lopez received a 180-day medical suspension from the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night win over Albert Morales on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Lopez outpointed Morales while utilizing the flying knee. He pushed the pace from the opening bell and continued moving forward throughout the remainder of the bout. While he didn't get the guillotine choke or big shots that he was looking for, Lopez was able to capture the win on the cards. He also sustained a possible nose fracture, which led the CSAC to give him 180 days off unless he's cleared earlier by a physician. Other fighters given long medical suspension pending clearance include Gabriel Benitez, Marlon Moraes, Scott Holtzman and Davi Ramos.
Scott Holtzman    UFC    Lightweight
Holtzman was given a 180-day medical suspension by the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night win over Darrell Horcher on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Holtzman played a solid physical game in this fight. He kept his distance while landing hard shots. Though he never came close to ending Horcher, he was able to score with elbows and knees and even landed a few inside trip takedowns. However, Holtzman sustained a possible right thumb injury and a few loose teeth, so the CSAC gave him a 180-day medical suspension. He'll have to sit out unless cleared earlier by a physician. Other fighters given long medical suspensions include Gabriel Benitez, Marlon Moraes, Benito Lopez and Davi Ramos.
Marlon Moraes    UFC    Bantamweight
Moraes received a medical suspension of 180 days by the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night victory over Aljamain Sterling on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Moraes made short work of Sterling after only 1:07 of the fight. He landed a few solid strikes before nailing his opponent with a knee to the head. The hit sent Sterling to the mat, where he laid unconscious for several minutes and has since stated that he is alright. Moraes didn't come away from the KO unscathed though; the CSAC gave him a 180-day medical suspension pending clearance for a possible right hand injury. Other fighters given extended breaks pending clearance after Fresno include Gabriel Benitez, Scott Holtzman, Benito Lopez and Davi Ramos.
Gabriel Benitez    UFC    Featherweight
Benitez was given a 180-day medical suspension by the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night win over Jason Knight, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Benitez took home one of the biggest wins of his career this weekend, defeating Knight via unanimous decision. Using his swift footwork and strategic counters, he was able to stop Knight's aggressive forward progress while slipping punches. However, in the back and forth, Benitez suffered a couple possible injuries that have led to the long medical suspension by the CSAC. He will have to sit out for 180 days unless cleared earlier by a physician. Other fighters to received similar suspensions pending clearance include Marlon Moraes, Scott Holtzman, Benito Lopez and Davi Ramos.
Markus Perez    UFC    Middleweight
Perez received an indefinite medical suspension from the California State Athletic Commission following his UFC Fight Night loss to Eryk Anders on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Perez had some points throughout the fight, but Anders basically controlled the bout. He pushed the pace, gassing out Perez after which he started landing shots with regularity. The unanimous decision loss left more than an "L" on Perez's record as he will be sidelined indefinitely until he has neurological clearance, per the CSAC. Aljamain Sterling faced a similar medical suspension pending neurological clearance.
