“Fight for the Troops 2” was held this past weekend at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, resulting in five fighters who are now benched due to medical suspensions following the event.
Tim Hague may have lost the bout to Mitrione in the evening’s co-main event leaving him on precautionary suspension until February 22nd, but he will be out for less time than his winning opponent, Mitrione.
Though Matt Mitrione defeated Tim Hague during their bout via TKO (punches) at only 2:59 of round 1, Mitrione is facing an indefinite suspension due to an injured left hand. Mitrione will require medical clearnace from an orthopedist before resuming action in the octagon.
Evan Dunham was defeated by Melvin Guillard via TKO (strikes) at 2:58 of round 1, and is looking at a precautionary suspension expected to be lifted February 22nd.
George Roop was also defeated via TKO (punches) at 1:28 of round 1 in his featherweight bout againist Mark Hominick and will me on medical suspension until February 22nd, which is the same length of time as Dunham and Hague.
Willamy Friere lost by unanimous decision to Waylon Lowe in the three round lightweight bout and now he’ll require doctor’s clearance after sustaining injuries to his right hand and right cheek (for which a facial surgeon will be required to clear).
“Fight for the Troops 2” was an extreme and action-packed event UFC provided, and this was a fairly short list of medical suspensions.
