UFC Vegas 27, also known as UFC on ESPN+ 46 and UFC Fight Night 188, took place over the weekend at the UFC Apex with Rob Font scoring a dominant decision victory over former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.

Following the event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced its full list of medical suspensions with a number of fighters facing a potential six-month layoff.

Among the fighters facing the lengthiest bans is Font, who must have right tibia/fibula, ankle, and foot x-rays and be cleared by an orthopedic surgeon if they are positive.
