UFC on ESPN: Poirier vs. Hooker - Medical suspensions

Gian Villante, Khama Worthy, and Brendan Allen all picked up potential 6-month suspensions following the UFC’s last event before heading to Fight Island.

The final UFC Apex event before the promotion heads off to Yas Island for the month of July is done and dusted. ‘The Diamond’ Dustin Poirier picked up a fantastic win in the main event of Dan Hooker. A brutal, back and fourth 5-round war of attrition that saw both men bleeding and battered by the final bell. Surprisingly, however, they aren’t high on the list of long-term medical suspensions coming out of the event.

Gian Villante will be sidelined for at least 45 days, following his 3rd round submission loss to Maurice Greene. But could be gone as long as 6 months, pending medical clearance, due to a suspected broken left hand. Likewise Brendan Allen, may have suffered a broken nose in his bout against Kyle Daukaus—which could also keep him sidelined until December.

Down on the prelims, Khama Worthy picked up an impressive third round submission win over Luis Pena—but may have injured his right ankle and left knee along the way. If he can’t get medical clearance to come back sooner, he too could be facing six months without a fight.
