The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to action this past weekend with UFC on ESPN+ 41 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. In the main event, Paul Felder went from the commentating booth to Octagon on short notice to take on former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, who came away with the win.

Following the event, the Nevada Athletic Commission announced the medical suspensions from every fighter on the card.

Felder is among the fighters who could miss up to six months. The late-replacement will be sidelined until May 14 unless his right elbow is cleared by an orthopedic doctor.
