UFC 263 Medical Suspensions: Brandon Moreno Faces Long Layoff

The medical suspensions list has been released following UFC 263.

The first Mexican-born UFC champion, Brandon Moreno, could be facing up to six months off if he is not cleared by an orthopedic doctor for his right foot. Also, Jamahal Hill has survived both an arm break and an indefinite layoff after his fight with Paul Craig at UFC 263. Hill could also return in six months or less with medical clearance.

The final fighter from the UFC 263 card who is facing a suspension of this length is Terrence McKinney, who burst onto the UFC scene with a seven-second TKO of Matt Frevola. Unfortunately, he injured his right knee during his post-fight celebration and will be out for 180 days as a result if not medically cleared before then.
