UFC 263 medical suspensions: Brandon Moreno among three fighters potentially out six-months

Three fighters who competed at UFC 263 may face as much as six months away from the cage.

With UFC 263 in the books, it’s time to weigh up the damage. This time around just three fighters who competed at the event face potential six month medical suspensions.

Among those included the co-main event winner Brandon Moreno who submitted Deiveson Figueiredo to win the UFC flyweight title. Moreno requires a doctor’s clearance for an injury to his right foot or he will be suspended for six months.

Jamahal Hill faces a 180 day suspension after his nasty first-round armbar loss to Paul Craig that left him with a dislocated elbow. Terrance McKinney is also on the potential six month layoff list, injuring his right knee whilst celebrating the fastest KO in lightweight history with his win over Matt Frevola.
