Ronda Rousey is on a six month health leave from the UFC after losing to Holly Holm by getting Knocked out, along withJoanna Jedrzejczyk.

The UFC does not allow athletes to compete for a certain period of time when severe injuries have taken place, so Rousey and Jedrzejczyk were each hit with medical suspensions that will last up to six months.

Following her victory over Valerie Letourneau, Jedrzejczyk broke her hand, and Rousey was taken to the hospital following being knocked out by Holm during her UFC 193 fight.

"The medical suspensions usually are handled by state athletic commissions regulating the fights and not made public. However, for last weekend's fight card in Australia, the UFC regulated itself in the absence of a commission and released a full list of medical suspensions to MixedMartialArts.com.

The suspension descriptions indicate concern for a head injury with Rousey and a broken right hand with Jedrzejczyk. ...

Rousey's suspension is also for 180 days, unless she is cleared by a head CT scan that reveals no damage. She is not to fight again for 60 days and not to have contact for 45."
