UFC 269 medical suspensions: Sean O’Malley, 3 others facing potential six month terms

O’Malley has a right hand injury that could see him away from competition until June. 

Sean O’Malley had a quick night at the office but could be sidelined until the middle of next year after suffering a right hand injury during his fight with Raulian Paiva at UFC 269 this past Saturday.

O’Malley scored another ‘Performance of the Night’ awarded technical knockout after finishing Paiva with strikes in the final seconds of the first round. Unfortunately, ‘Sugar’ later received a potential six-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his right hand. O’Malley must have an X-ray and MRI done to assess the damage and will require clearance from an orthopedic doctor if there is any.

Joining O’Malley are Pedro Munhoz (right foot), Miranda Maverick (left foot) and Tony Kelley (left shoulder), all of whom also require clearance from an orthopedic doctor for their respective injuries.
