New, 5 comments

Paddy Pimblett and Darren Till had very different fortunes at UFC Vegas 36, but they might both be out for half a year.

Paddy Pimblett and Darren Till were on opposite ends of the win-loss column at UFC Vegas 36; however, you might not see either of them in the Octagon for a while.

Pimblett (right thumb) and Till (face) are among the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighters facing potential six-month suspensions, according to mixedmartialarts.com. The other six-monthers are Tom Aspinall (right hand), Alex Morono (left knee), David Zawada (nose), Khalil Rountree (left hand), Modestas Bukauskas (nose, left knee), Molly McCann (hands), and Jack Shore (left shoulder).

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.
