The Ultimate Fighting Championship held UFC Vegas 28 last weekend at the UFC Apex with a showdown between two heavy-handed heavyweights headlining the event.

In the main event, Jairzinho Rozenstruik was able to score a TKO victory over Augusto Sakai with just one second remaining in the first round.

The co-main event also saw a first-round finish, with Marcin Tybura taking out Walt Harris in just over four minutes.

Following the event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced its full list of medical suspensions with Rozenstruik and Sakai avoiding lengthy layoffs.

Iliri Latifi, Sean Woodson, and Alan Patrick, meanwhile, could miss the remainder of 2021 if they are not cleared by specialists.
