Only three fighters received lengthy medical suspensions after UFC 272. 

Three fighters are facing extended time away from the Octagon following their fights at UFC 272 on Saturday night.

Jalin Turner, Jamie Mullarkey and Kennedy Nzechukwu were given potential six-month medical suspensions by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) on Monday. The ‘Tarantula’ earned his fourth consecutive finish with a second-round technical knockout of Mullarkey, but both men will need X-rays of their injuries before they can be cleared to compete again. Turner injured his left knee and foot, while Mullarkey suffered damage to his right ribs. As for Nzechukwu, he must receive X-rays on his right hand and left foot after his split decision loss to Nicolae Negumereanu.
