UFC Vegas 32 medical suspensions: T.J. Dillashaw potentially out for six months

New, 3 comments

The former two-time bantamweight champion had a successful return on Saturday, but it may be awhile before we see him again. 

T.J. Dillashaw is facing more time away from the Octagon following his return to competition at last Saturday night’s UFC Vegas 32 event.

The former two-time bantamweight champion earned a split decision win over Cory Sandhagen in the main event of the evening, but that may be the last time we see him this year. Dillashaw sustained some injuries in the fight — a gruesome cut on his eyebrow and multiple tears in his left knee — and they are responsible for the potential six-month suspension he has been given by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) via mixedmartialarts.com. He needs an MRI scan on his left knee (which he has already done) and is expected to undergo surgery to repair the tears soon.

Dillashaw is joined by Adrian Yanez, who is also facing a potential six-month suspension, after his fight with Randy Costa.
