Michael Bisping Faces Six-Month Suspension Following UFC 204

Michael Bisping Forming Retirement Plan

Michael Bisping finally avenged a previous loss to Dan Henderson, besting the retiring middleweight at UFC 204 on Saturday.

It could be a while before the UFC middleweight champ fights again, however, as Bisping landed on the UFC 204 medical suspension list with a 180-day suspension. He could return sooner if he gets medically cleared by a face and head CT scan.

Several other fighters on the card joined him with potential six-month suspensions, including fellow main card fighters Ovince Saint Preux and Russell Doane.
