The biggest earner on the night, Miller, also came out of his 160lbs catchweight fight with Roosevelt Roberts unscathed, avoiding any suspension from the NSAC. His opponent Roberts however, received a six month suspension, and will have to undergo an MRI on his left elbow, following the fight ending armbar.

Josh Emmett also received a six month suspension. Although with the injuries the 35 year old featherweight suffered to his left knee, it is unlikely that he will fight again this year.
