Hill showed off some damage to his forearm after his fight with Walker at UFC Vegas 48. 

Jamahal Hill scored a first-round knockout of Johnny Walker at UFC Vegas 48, but ’Sweet Dreams’ could spend some time away from the Octagon over injuries he suffered in the fight.

On Wednesday, Hill was given a potential six-month medical suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for injuries to his left elbow, left knee and right forearm. The damage to his forearm was immediately noticed as the 30-year-old showed off the very swollen area during his post-fight interview with Paul Felder. Though he was not too concerned with the swelling, Hill must have X-rays of his elbow and forearm as well as an MRI of his knee to avoid being on the sidelines until August.

Another fighter was a litany of injuries was Abdul Razak Alhassan, who revealed he broke his rib in his split decision loss to Joaquin Buckley in the opener of the main card.
