UFC Vegas 21 Medical Suspensions: How Long Is Muhammad Out?

The UFC Vegas 21 medical suspensions have been released.

At UFC Vegas 21, Belal Muhammad was the victim of a vicious eye poke from Leon Edwards that saw the main event end in a no-contest. It was clear from both the audio of Muhammad’s groans as well as the visual of Muhammad’s blinded eye just how devastating the eye poke was.

Despite the optics, though, Muhammad is not looking at a long suspension at all. As long as he is cleared by an ophthalmologist, Muhammad could find himself back in action in one month. Below is the full medial suspensions list following UFC Vegas 21 via mixedmartialarts.com.
