Victorious primary event and co-main event boxers Anthony Pettis along with Curtis Blaydes were just one of a group of five fighters to become issued potential 180-day clinical suspensions within the wake of UFC Nashville.

The Tennessee Athletic Commission released the big event ’s graduated medical suspension record to MMA Fighting on Monday.

Pettis scored a stunning second-round knock out of Stephen Thompson at night’s main event, while Blaydes dominated Justin Willis enroute to a lopsided unanimous decision win from your card’s co-headlining bout. As a result of potential damage sustained in the competitions, both fighters will undoubtedly soon likely be made to seek medical aid to their various prospective injuries (Pettis, ENT clearance; Blaydes, right-wing ) or sit-out 180 weeks before returning to active rivalry, per Tennessee commission officials.

Besides Pettis and Blaydes, three other fighters to the card received similar potential 180-day clinical suspensions: Luis Pena (straight shoulder and right lower ribs), Maycee Barber (righthand ), along with JJ Aldrich (ophthalmologist clearance).

UFC Nashville happened March 2-3 in Bridgestone Arena at Nashville, Tennessee. The night’s chief card beamed live on ESPN+.
