A bizarre fight week in New York ended with relatively light medical orders, as no one on the card was issued a minimum suspension longer than 45 days. Included on that list is UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC), who scored a submission win over Anthony Johnson (22-6 MMA, 13-6 UFC) in the main event of the card, which took place this past Saturday at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y. Johnson, who retired after the contest, was suspended for 30 days. Every fighter on the card was handed a seven-day suspension, which the New York State Athletic Commission deems a “standard post-bout wait period.” Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (13-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) was also issued a 45-day minimum suspension after suffering a controversial TKO loss to Gegard Mousasi (42-6-2 MMA, 9-3 UFC)
