UFC Vegas 11 brought the pain and as a result there will be a few breaks for the fighters involved (puns intended all around). The worst of the suspensions hit at the six month mark, but as usual, can all be shortened if cleared by a doctor prior to that.

The most obvious of those comes from the headliner in which Tyron Woodley was stopped with a rib injury. Subsequent x-rays were shown online which included a break and a tearing of the muscle. He’ll need to have that cleared or will face the full 180 days.

Also somewhat unsurprising is the suspension for Randa Markos. Following an armbar loss to Mackenzie Dern she appears to have suffered damage to her left elbow. The commission in this case has not asked for an x-ray, but will need clearance nevertheless.

More surprising was Niko Price who appears to have broken his right hand on Donald Cerrone’s head. That will need to be cleared in order for him to avoid the time out of the cage.

Following a knee to the face courtesy of Jessica-Rose Clark, Sarah Alpar will need to have a nasal fracture cleared. The same 180 days that was given to the aforementioned applies to her as well.

Full list of suspensions:

Tyron Woodley – 180 days or unless Costochondral tear is cleared by Orthopedic Dr.
Niko Price – 180 days or unless cleared by right hand x-ray.
Gerald Meerschaert – 45 days

Randa Markos – 180 days or unless left elbow is cleared by Dr.
