UFC Vegas 21 medical suspensions: Belal Muhammad out for a month

Check out the medical suspensions handed down by NSAC for the latest UFC APEX event.

UFC Vegas 21 ended off on a sour note as the main event between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad was ruled a no contest. That ruling came after Muhammad was poked in the eye by Edwards and was rendered incapable of continuing the fight.

Before that, the card was witness to some bruising affairs and a couple of crushing knockouts. Because of this there were a number of lengthy suspensions handed out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Surprisingly, and rather fortunately, Muhammad is not one of those who was handed a long suspension. You can see a full breakdown of the suspensions below (which were released via MixedMartialArts.com):
