Matt Brown has been placed on a medical suspension by the Ohio Athletic Commission after his an impressive win at UFC Fight Night 40.
The Xenia, Ohio native was placed on a 45 day suspension by the commission. He will also receive an indefinite suspension until a doctor clears his right elbow.
Brown defeated Erick Silva in the main event by TKO in the third round. The 33-year-old has now won seven straight fights and finished his opponent by strikes in six of the seven.
After his fight, Brown received $100,000 in post fight bonuses for his "Performance of the Night" and "Fight of the Night" awards. It was the third straight fight that Brown received a post fight bonus.
Silva also received a medical suspension for 60 days and will receive an indefinite suspension until a doctor is able to clear his jaw. Nine other fighters on Saturday’s card received suspensions.
