Below is the medical suspension list of all the four fighters
- Vitor Belfort: No Suspension
- Evander Holyfield: Suspended for 30 days
- Anderson Silva: No Suspension
- Tito Ortiz: Suspended for 60 days
It was clear that Holyfield, being 58 years old, was not the boxer that we saw in his prime. So, it will be interesting to see if returns to the ring again ever.
Ortiz, on the other hand, is already calling out Logan Paul for a fight despite getting embarrassed by Anderson Silva. Keep tuned in for the updates if Ortiz manages to get either of Paul Brothers to fight him.
