Lembo said he was contacted this past Friday by M-1 Global about Emelianenko's plans and said he explained the terms of the suspension.
"There was some confusion since it was the first time they were dealing with a commission-issued medical suspension, and the confusion surrounded whether the 90 days stays in effect if he provided a clear CT scan of the head and facial bones," Lembo said. "He has provided the required CT scan, and that's under medical review."
Lembo said Emelianenko's suspension could be upheld, reduced, or removed depending on the recommendation of NJSACB doctors. He added that fighters who competed under medical suspension typically had their fight license revoked for one year in addition to being placed on a national registry that would in all likelihood bar them from competing in states with athletic commissions.
"It's my understanding that they are going to honor the suspension and he is not going to compete," Lembo said.
