A bloody UFC Vegas 49 card has left several fighters the worse for wear.
According to the list of medical suspensions acquired by mixedmartialarts.com, Priscila Cachoeira is one of five fighters who could be out of action until August following Saturday’s event at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
Cachoeira defeated Ji Yeon Kim in a closely contested bout that earned both women the Fight of the Night award and an extra $50,000 each. To avoid six months suspension, the Brazilian flyweight must be cleared by an ENT (ear nose and throat), OMF (oral, maxillofacial) or ophthalmologist.
The other winners potentially out until August are Armen Petrosyan (left foot), Jonathan Martinez (left foot), and Carlos Hernandez (left knee). UFC newcomer Ramona Pascual also suffered a nose injury in a loss to Josiane Nunes.
Headliners Islam Makhachev and Bobby Green are not expected to miss a significant amount of time, with Makhachev not being listed with any injury and Green receiving a minimal suspension of no contest until March 29. Green was offered the fight as Beneil Dariush’s replacement and accepted it on short notice.
The Nevada Athletic Commission was responsible for overseeing UFC Vegas 49.
