Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) recently handed down its list of injuries and medical suspension for those athletes competing at the UFC Vegas 48 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sat. night (Feb. 19, 2022) inside the promotion’s APEX facility in “Sin City.”

A total of 10 fighters were slapped with six-month medical suspensions, including event headliner Jamahal Hill. “Sweet Dreams” needs medical clearance on his left elbow, right forearm, and left knee before he can return to action.

That’s not all.

Here are the complete UFC Vegas 48 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.
