UFC Vegas 36 Medical Suspensions: These Three Fighters Might Be Sidelined For Half A Year

Darren Till, Tom Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett have been making headlines since Saturday’s UFC Fight Night. But these fighters will have to wait awhile before getting back into the octagon.

Till has suffered lots of injuries during the previous years; he could be sidelined for six months if his required facial CT scan comes up positive and gets no medical clearance. Aspinall must receive clearness from an orthopedic doctor for his right hand or he can also sit out for six months.

Pimblett suffered a right thumb injury and could be out until March of 2022. Alex Morono also suffered a left knee injury and needs some time for recovery.

David Zawada damaged his nose. Khalil Rountree suffered a left-hand injury, just like Modestas Bukauskas, but Bukauskas has more serious problems with his left knee.

Molly McCann, who earned a $50,000 bonus for the Fight of the Night, needs clearness for both hands. Jack Shore suffered a left shoulder injury.
