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.

The Ohio Athletic Commission released the medical suspensions list on Monday following Saturday night’s event at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. The main card aired live on FOX Sports 1.
