UFC Fight Night 117 injuries, medical suspensions: Okami, Gadelha benched for 45 days

UFC Fight Night 117 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Saint Preux vs. Okami”-led mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FXX last Friday night (Sept. 22, 2017) from inside Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, were released earlier this week by UFC to Association of Boxing Commissions record keeper.

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is Daichi Abe, who will spend the next 180 days on the bench after having his face busted in his win over Hyun Gyu Lim. Hyun also will sit for 180 days after the brutal back-and-forth brawl. In addition, Clauda Gadelha earned a 45-day sit after getting bloodied up by Jessica Andrade during their “Fight of the Night.”

The full list of UFC Fight Night 117 medical suspensions (courtesy of MMA Junkie) are as follows:

Yushin Okami: Suspended 45 days due to no tap on choke, leaving him unconscious, with 30 days no contact.

Jessica Andrade: Suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact for forehead laceration.

Claudia Gadelha: Suspended 45 days for right eyebrow laceration; head CT scan was negative.

Takanori Gomi: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO.

Henrique da Silva: Suspended 60 days with 45 days no contact for knockout.

Teruto Ishihara: Suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact.

Rolando Dy: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact.

Keita Nakamura: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact; head CT scan was negative.

Alex Morono: Suspended 180 days or until cleared by X-ray for right hand, and suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact for right eyebrow laceration.

Hyun Gyu Lim: Suspended 180 days or until cleared by ophthalmologist, and suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for nasal laceration.

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
