UFC 229 took place last weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has finally released its list of medical suspensions from the pay-per-view event. The event was headlined by the highly-anticipated lightweight championship bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor and capped off with a post-fight brawl that spilled into the crowd after Nurmagomedov retained his title.
McGregor received a minimum medical suspension of 30 days, while Khabib was not listed with any injuries.
The lengthiest medical lay-offs belong to Anthony Pettis (nasal fracture), Dominick Reyes (left leg), Jalia Turner (nasal fracture), Scott Holtzmann (right hand and foot), and Alan Patrick (orbital fracture) who could all miss up to six months if they are not cleared by a doctor.
