The UFC’s final event in 2021 produced 16 medical suspensions of fighters, including a half-dozen who face six-month layoffs without medical clearance.

Perennial bantamweight contender Raphael Assuncao is among those who need approval with the Nevada Athletic Commission recommending an MRI on his left knee. The Brazilian suffered a second round knockout loss at the hands of Ricky Simon, who escaped without suspension.
