Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) recently handed down its list of injuries and medical suspension for those athletes competing at the UFC Vegas 47 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sat. night (Feb. 5, 2022) inside the promotion’s APEX facility in “Sin City.”

Eight fighters were slapped with six-month medical suspensions, including the tooth-challenged Sam Alvey. Event headliners, Sean Strickland and Jack Hermansson, drew relatively light sentences and could be back inside the Octagon in just a couple of weeks, depending on what UFC has in store for them.

Here are the complete UFC Vegas 47 injuries and medial suspensions from the folks at MixedMartialArts.com, helpfully compiled by MMA Fighting:

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.
