UFC Vegas 29 Medical Suspensions: Korean Zombie Facing Long Layoff

The UFC Vegas 29 medical suspensions list has been released, and two fighters are facing potential six-month suspensions, including one of the headliners.

Chan Sung Jung, aka The Korean Zombie, picked up the unanimous-decision victory over Dan Ige in the UFC Vegas 29 main event, but as he stated after the event, he suffered a shoulder injury during the bout. Jung will now need medical clearance to prevent being sidelined for six months.

Also on the main card, Marlon Vera and Davey Grant took part in an all-out war that took home Fight of the Night honors. Vera managed to escape with only a one-month suspension, but Grant cannot say the same and will be out for six months without clearance for a nasal bone fracture suffered during the bout.
