UFC Vegas 36 medical suspensions: Darren Till among nine fighters facing lengthy absences

New, 1 comment

Darren Till is one of nine fighters from UFC Vegas 36 who could be out until next year. 

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released its medical suspensions for UFC Vegas 36 and several fighters are facing potentially significant time away from the Octagon.

Darren Till is one of nine to be given a potential six-month suspension. He needs a CT scan done and requires clearance from an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor for facial injuries suffered in his fight against Derek Brunson. It is worth mentioning that Till entered the fight with a torn ACL in his right knee, which could also keep him out of action for an extended period of time.

Joining Till is Modestas Bukauskas, who had his left knee obliterated by an oblique kick thrown by Khalil Rountree. Bukauskas said that he may have some ligament damage and will undergo a now-required MRI scan to assess the damage.
