Arizona issues 'safety recommendation' for one fighter to retire after brutal WSOF 19 loss
(sherdog.com)
Twelve fighters received extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of World Series of Fighting 19, including lightweight headliners Justin Gaethje and Luis Palomino, according to information released to MMAFighting.com by the Arizona Boxing & MMA Commission. Gaethje and Palomino both sported a myriad of injuries from their ‘Fight of the Year' candidate brawl, which Gaethje won by third-round TKO to retain his WSOF lightweight belt. Palomino will now be forced to receive clearance on his left knee, ankle, thigh, and right hand before returning to competition, while Gaethje will be forced to do the same for his right brow and right foot. The most curious note from the event's medical suspension report came from the undercard though. , a 31-year-old regular of the Arizona fight scene, was given an indefinite suspension by the ABMC along with a "safety recommendation to stop competing."

MMA Lawsuit Dismissed on Technicality
(ufc.com)
Judge Kimba Wood of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled on UFC® and other Plaintiffs’ claim that New York’s mixed martial arts (MMA) law is so vaguely written that reasonable people could not understand what it prohibited. While avoiding ruling on the legality of New York’s MMA statute on technical grounds, the judge advised UFC to “consider filing new vagueness claims.” She said that the Attorney General’s “recent statements that the Ban prohibits sanctioned MMA” were made “despite [the law’s] plain language to the contrary.” The Court’s decision confirms that New York law allows sanctioned professional MMA and that the AG is wrong in prohibiting it. UFC is a responsible corporate citizen and has chosen not to act contrary to the AG’s position, even though that position is legally unsustainable. (Courtesy of on Twitter)
