The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed down their list of suspensions following UFC Vegas 32 inside the Apex. In total, 16 of the 22 fighters on the card saw some level of suspension due to injuries sustained inside of the cage. Two winners stood out with the longest of those suspensions.

In the main event TJ Dillashaw narrowly edged out Cory Sandhagen in a 5-round affair that was packed with action. While TJ was the one with his hand raised at the end of the night, he’ll also be the one with a longer medical suspension. NSAC gave Dillashaw a 180 suspension due to apparent damage in his knee. That damage occurred during an inside heel hook attempt late in the first round. Dillashaw attempted to simply move his body forward and punch Sandhagen for his efforts, but ultimately appears to have paid a larger price for his decisions. That suspension can be cleared early with a clean bill of health from the appropriate medical professional.

Also picking up a win was Adrian Yanez, who stormed back from a round first round against Randy Costa to get the second round stoppage. However, the damage done by Costa in the first appears to have been significant. Yanez will also face 180 days on the shelf due to apparent breaks in his nasal bones. Like Dillashaw, Yanez can have that suspension lifted early with the appropriate clearance from a doctor.

TJ Dillashsaw – 180 days or until cleared by left knee MRI
Cory Sandhagen – 30 days
Raulian Paiva – 45 days
