UFC 260 injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at the “Miocic vs. Ngannou 2”-led event this past weekend (March 27, 2021) from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, have been obtained by The Underground.

In the main event of the evening, Francis Ngannou knocked out Stipe Miocic in the second round to claim the Heavyweight title (see it again here). In the co-headlining act, Vicente Luque and Tyron Woodley went to war, resulting in a first round submission win for Luque (recap).

In further action, Sean O’Malley added another highlight to his growing reel after delivering an absolute brutal knockout over Thomas Almeida. Despite all of the finishes, thankfully there weren’t any major medical suspensions handed out to competing fighters. However, Jamie Mullarkey, Omar Morales, Shane Young, Fabio Cherant and Gillian Robertson need doctor clearance and positive results in further tests to prevent six-month sits.
