UFC Vegas 33 Medical Suspensions: 9 Fighters Face 6-Month Layoff

The UFC Vegas 33 medical suspensions have been released, and a whopping nine fighters could be out for six months if they do not receive medical clearance.

UFC Vegas 33 took place this past Saturday, and in the main event, Sean Strickland coasted to a unanimous decision victory over Uriah Hall and snatched up a #8 ranking for his efforts. That win did not come with a heavy cost, though, as Strickland could be out for six months if he does not receive clearance for his left thigh, knee, and prosthetic tooth.

Strickland’s opponent Uriah Hall, meanwhile, came away with a fractured orbital and is facing the same potential six-month suspension without clearance.

Check out the details of both Strickland’s and Hall’s medical suspensions, the seven other names facing the same potential layoff, and all the other information below via mixedmartialarts.com.
