Damon Jackson, who suffered a vicious knockout by flying knee that had played on a loop since last Thursday night when it occurred, received a 90-day medical suspension from the New York State Athletic Commission.

It was the longest such suspension issued by NYSAC for PFL 2, which took place on May 23 at NYCB Live's Nassau Coliseum. NYSAC's medical suspensions were made available on Tuesday.

Movlid Khaybulaev was the featherweight who delivered the knockout knee in PFL-record 10 seconds. He was suspended seven days.

Jeremy Kennedy, a featherweight who was knocked out by Luis Rafael Laurentino in 23 seconds, received a 60-day suspension.

How the suspension will affect Jackson's next scheduled regular-season bouts at PFL 5 on July 25 in Atlantic City is unclear. No decision has been made on Jackson's status yet, a PFL spokesman told Newsday. Fighters can appeal to the commission for a reduction in their suspension.
