UFC Fight Island 6 medical suspensions: Knee injury could sideline James Krause for 180 days

New, comments

Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung came out of their main event mostly unscathed, two other fighter my be out for sometime, though.

This weekend the UFC’s latest Fight Island offering went down in Abu Dhabi. This event saw Brian Ortega, freshly shaved and sporting a rather large cup, take the fight to Chan Sung Jung and win an impressive unanimous decision. The win now has Ortega in pole position to challenge Alex Volkanovski for the UFC featherweight title.

Elsewhere on the UFC Fight Island 6 card TUF veteran James Krause took a hard fought win over Claudio Silva. Krause beat Silva to the punch throughout their fight, but—in the process—ate a number of heavy leg kicks. One of those kicks buckled Krause, leading him to tell his corner that he feared his knee had been damaged.

Now, thanks to The Underground forum, we have the list of medical suspensions which the UFC has handed out (due to them acting as their own commission in the United Arab Emirates). And we can see that, if Krause is right about his knee, he might be on the sidelines for some time.
