A variety of fighters received 180 day medical suspensions. Despite a dominant performance and no visible damage, Amanda Nunes will require an x-ray on her right leg, before a six month suspension can be overturned. Her opponent, Spencer, suffered multiple facial fractures and a huge hemotomea so she will likely sit out for the full time.
Other fighters who face a lengthy lay-off are Chase Hooper, Brian Kelleher, Charles Byrd, Alex Perez, and Devin Clark.
