UFC Vegas 14 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Felder vs. dos Anjos”-led event this past weekend (Sat., Nov. 14, 2020) from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, have been obtained by The Underground.

Leading the way in mandatory sits are Alex Morono and Roque Martinez, who could be riding the pine for up to six months following injuries sustained during their bouts against Rhys McKee and Don’Tale Mayes, respectively. In addition, Paul Felder could face a similar medical suspension depending on what upcoming medical tests show on his right elbow. “Irish Dragon” came up short against Rafael dos Anjos, losing a split decision in the main event of the evening (highlights).
