UFC Vegas 17 Medical Suspensions: Stephen Thompson Faces Six-Month Sit

The UFC Vegas 17 medical suspensions have rolled out.

UFC Vegas 17 was held on December 19. The action took place inside the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, welterweights Stephen Thompson and Geoff Neal collided. “Wonderboy” turned in a one-sided performance, nabbing the unanimous decision victory over Neal. This is Neal’s first loss under the UFC banner.

While Thompson got the clear nod, he didn’t walk away unscathed. The former UFC Welterweight Title challenger will need to have an MRI of his right knee and thigh, as well as an X-Ray of his right hand. If he is positive for injuries, he’ll need clearance from an orthopedic doctor, otherwise, he’ll be shelved until June 18, 2021.
