Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) recently handed down its list of injuries and medical suspension for those athletes competing at the UFC Vegas 49 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sat. night (Feb. 26, 2022) inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas.

A total of five fighters were slapped with six-month medical timeouts; however, event headliner Islam Makhachev will escape “Sin City” with no suspension. Bobby Green, who fell to Makhachev by way of first-round technical knockout, will be back in action after a mandatory 30-day rest period (coupled with 21 days of no contact).

That’s not all.

Here are the complete UFC Vegas 48 injuries and medial suspensions from the folks at MixedMartialArts.com, helpfully compiled by MMA Junkie:

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
