UFC on ESPN 56: Rebecki, McKinney Receive 90-Day Medical Suspensions

Oh boy, Mateusz Rebecki and Terrance McKinney are on the sidelines for a bit. They’ve been handed the longest timeouts after UFC on ESPN 56—90 days each! And yep, they’ve gotta pass a neurological exam before they can jump back into the fray. The Missouri Office of Athletics dropped this bombshell of a list on Monday, detailing all the medical suspensions.

Rebecki? He took a brutal beating from Diego Ferreira. It was something out of a movie, honestly. And McKinney? Poor guy got his lights turned out with a head-kick from Esteban Ribovics. Talk about a rough day at the office.

The event itself was in St. Louis at the Enterprise Center. Derrick Lewis stole the show, sending Rodrigo Nascimento packing with a third-round TKO. Nascimento’s licking his wounds for 30 days, but Lewis? He walked away without a scratch.

Let’s talk suspensions, shall we? Rodrigo Nascimento is benched for 30 days. Nursulton Ruziboev and Alonzo Menifield are sitting out for 60 days. And then there’s Rebecki and McKinney, both staring down a 90-day suspension. They need that all-clear from a neurological exam before they’re back.

Alex Caceres, Viacheslav Borshchev, Trey Waters, and Billy Goff—they’re all taking a mandatory 30-day break. Seems like the aftermath of UFC on ESPN 56 has left quite a few fighters with some forced R&R.
