UFC Vegas 26 Medical Suspensions: 3 Potentially Long Layoffs

The UFC Vegas 26 medical suspensions list has been released, and three fighters are facing a long layoff.

At UFC Vegas 26, Marina Rodriguez defeated Michelle Waterson in the main event via unanimous decision. Rodriguez’s jaw was visibly swollen later in the fight, but there was no breakage, and she will be cleared to compete next month, as will her opponent, Michelle Waterson.

In the co-main event, Alex Morono defeated Donald Cerrone in what many thought could be Cowboy’s last ride. We now know that he will have at least one more fight at lightweight, and seeing as how he is not facing a long suspension, Cerrone and the UFC can begin exploring potential opponents whenever they’re ready. As for Morono, he is not facing any suspension at all.

Three fighters are facing a long layoff, however, that being Maurice Greene, Mike Trizano, and Carlston Harris, who will each be out for six months without medical clearance.

Here is the full list of medical suspensions from UFC Vegas 26 via mixedmartialarts.com.
