Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) self-regulated its UFC Fight Island 6 mixed martial arts (MMA) event last weekend on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE, adhering to the established guidelines already in place from Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

While salaries and other post-fight goodies will not be disclosed for those folks competing at “Ortega vs. Korean Zombie,” federal law requires stateside promotions to file its list of medical suspensions with Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC).

MixedMartialArts.com has been the sport’s official records keeper since 2008 and as expected, obtained the complete list of UFC Fight Island 6 injuries and medical suspensions, which could spell lengthy timeouts for James Krause and Mark Striegl.

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
