The UFC’s final spend-for every-perspective of 2020 was a thriller, but it could be a although right before we see some of its stars compete yet again.
Seven fighters are dealing with potential 6-month health-related suspensions, which include UFC 256 flyweight championship key party contributors Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno. The two battled for 25 minutes this earlier Saturday, with Figueiredo successfully defending his title by way of majority draw.
Figueiredo will demand clearance from a health practitioner for a broken toe on his suitable foot and an MRI of his right bicep. If that MRI is constructive, Figueiredo will then demand clearance from an orthopedic health care provider or be on the shelf until June 11.
Moreno ought to also bear an MRI for his still left shoulder and an X-ray of his left forearm and get clearance from corresponding medical professionals or he faces the same prospective suspension as Figueiredo.
Other fighters who competed on Saturday that will need even further assessment and clearance to prevent a 6-month suspension are Tony Ferguson (left elbow), Mackenzie Dern (nasal fracture, still left hand), Cub Swanson (right hand), Sam Hughes (still left eye), and Peter Barrett (right knee).
