The Indiana Gaming Commission handed seven UFC Fight Night 27 fighters medical suspensions. Two of these fighters, Court McGee and Dylan Andrews, fared worse than the others. They both received indefinite medical suspensions, meaning they’ll need to be cleared by a physician before they can do anything meaningful.

Court McGee won a grueling split decision over TUF: Smashes winner Robert Whittaker. And Dylan Andrews, after getting thrown around for two rounds, knocked out Papy Abedi in the third round but claimed in the post-fight interview to have damaged his shoulder. Attentive viewers might have noticed that Andrews couldn’t put his arm through the sleeve of his shirt after the fight— never a good sign. But, officially, the Commission has yet to disclose any specific injuries he may have suffered.

There were other medical suspensions, though they were not as severe:

Sara McMann Out of UFC Fight Night 27 Due to Injury

Due to an undisclosed injury, 7-0 bantamweight Sara McMann has been forced to withdraw from her upcoming match against former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman, which was slated for UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann 2, August 28th in Indianapolis. MMAJunkie reported the news yesterday, and McMann’s agent confirmed it, stating that the former Olympic silver medalist “will be back in the cage soon.”

It would have been the second UFC appearance for McMann, who scored a first-round TKO against German striker Sheila Gaff at UFC 159. The UFC is currently looking for a replacement opponent for Kaufman. Our suggestion: Leslie Smith, who lost a somewhat controversial split-decision to Kaufman in a three-round war at Invicta FC 5. Time for a rematch? Come on Joe Silva, we know you’re reading this.

UFC Fight Night 27 (f.k.a. UFC on FOX Sports 1: 2) has previously lost Paulo Thiago and Derrick Lewis to injuries. The current lineup is after the jump…
