Three fighters — Marion Reneau, Malcolm Gordon and Alan Baudot — may be away from competition for six months after their fights at UFC Vegas 31 last Saturday night.

Reneau fought against a returning Miesha Tate in the co-main event, where she was finished for the first time in her professional career by way of third-round technical knockout. She planned to retire from the sport after this fight regardless of the result, which she ultimately did. However, Reneau may have suffered a broken nose during the fight and that is why she received a 180-day medical suspension.

Joining Reneau are Gordon and Baudot, who both need to be medically cleared to compete again after suffering injuries in their preliminary fights against Francisco Figueiredo and Rodrigo Nascimento respectively. Gordon may have a broken right hand, while Baudot may have a broken nose.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released the medical suspensions from the event on Tuesday morning and they were distributed by mixedmartialarts.com.
