It took Jamahal Hill just under three minutes to score his latest win, but it was still a rough outing for him.

Hill picked up an incredible knockout of Johnny Walker in Saturday’s UFC Vegas 48 main event, which gave him his third KO/TKO victory in his past four outings. However, according to the list of medical suspensions acquired by mixedmartialarts.com, Hill will require further examination and clearance for his left elbow, right forearm, and left knee before he can compete again. The light heavyweight contender could potentially be out of action until August.

Saturday’s card left multiple fighters the worse for wear, with nine others also facing potential six-month medical suspensions: Nikolas Motta (left knee), Abdul Razak Alhassan (right hand/wrist, left ribs, left foot, right hip), Gabriel Benitez (left knee), Jessica-Rose Clark (right elbow), Chas Skelly (left hand), Mark Striegl (right knee), Diana Belbita (right eye), Christian Rodriguez (right hand), and Mario Bautista (left elbow/forearm).

Walker, the other half of the UFC Vegas 48 main event, is suspended from competition until April 21.

UFC Vegas 48 was overseen by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
