Joe Vedepo Issued Only Medical Suspension From UFC Fight Night

The Nebraska State Athletic Commission has confirmed to MMANews.com that the only medical suspension issued from UFC Fight Night 15 that took place last Wednesday evening went to Joe Vedepo.

Vedepo was knocked out byt Alessio Sakara with a head kick that sent the UFC newcomer stubbling backwards before dropping to the mat.

The suspension will last 45 days days due to, as the commission called it “heavy head blows”.
