Bellator Europe 6 medical suspensions: Josie Blaber gets 180 days, others out indefinitely

By: |


Bellator finished closed out its 2019 European series schedule Saturday in London with Bellator Europe 6, which took place at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

In the main event, Michael Page ran through Italian newcomer Giovanni Melilla by picking up another first-round knockout. The co-headliner saw Fabian Edwards edge out a split decision win against Mike Shipman.

On Monday, MMA Junkie received medical suspensions from Mohegan Sun Tribe Department of Regulation president Mike Mazzulli, who oversaw regulation of the event. Among those facing lengthy suspensions is Sam Sicilia. The Washington-based fighter was knocked out by fellow UFC veteran Robert Whiteford and will need neurological clearance to return. Whiteford was suspended indefinitely for a potential ankle/foot injury.

After his win over Terry Brazier, Soren Bak was suspended indefinitely until his right knee is cleared by a physician.

Additionally, Josie Blaber was suspended 180 days or until cleared by a doctor. Blaber was on the receiving end of brutal, dragged-out attack by Charlotte McIntyre in the card’s curtain jerker.
