It should come as no surprise that Denys Bondar is facing a lenghty medical suspension following his appearance at UFC Fight Night 200.
Bondar must have his left elbow cleared by an orthopedic doctor or he will be out until Aug. 5. At a minimum he is suspended until March 23 with no contact until March 8. Bondar suffered the injury when he posted his arm during a scramble in his flyweight matchup with Malcolm Gordon this past Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The bout was halted 1:22 into Round 1 once Bondar yelled in pain and indicated he could not continue.
