UFC Vegas 15 medical suspensions: Seven fighters could be out for six months

Norma Dumont, Ashlee Evans-Smith and five others are facing a potential six month suspension after UFC Vegas 15.

Last weekend Anthony Smith took care of business in the main event of UFC Vegas 15. He took a little over two minutes to submit Devin Clark with a triangle choke. Both men came out of that fight unscathed, but the same can not be said of the rest of competitors on the card.

Thanks to MixedMartialArts.com we know the full list of medical suspensions handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Among those suspensions are a number of sanctions that could see fighters put on the sidelines for six months.

Those fighters facing lengthy suspensions include Takashi Sato, Parker Porter, Bill Algeo, Norma Dumont Viana, Ashlee Evans-Smith, Jonathan Pearce and Rachael Ostovich.

Sato lost by submission on Saturday, but not before taking some hard shots to the face. Ostovich’s night was ended with a body kick TKO. Porter, Algeo and Viana were all on the winning end of decisions (with Evans-Smith losing to Viana) and Pearce scored a submission win.
