UFC Vegas 19 Medical Suspensions: Lewis Could Be Out Six Months

The UFC Vegas 19 medical suspensions are in, and the night’s big winner, Derrick Lewis, is among the list of fighters who could be out six months.

In the UFC Vegas 19 main event, Derrick Lewis knocked out Curtis Blaydes in the second round, but in the process, he injured his right hand and wrist and now must receive a doctor’s clearance in order to compete before August 20. Also in the heavyweight division, Chris Daukaus faces a similar situation after knocking out Aleksei Oleinik via TKO. Daukaus must have an X-ray of his right hand and receive doctor’s clearance in order to compete before the same date of August 20.

The other two fighters who face the same potential six-month suspension are John Castenada, who was victorious over veteran Eddie Wineland, and Nate Landwehr, who was TKOed by Julian Erosa.
