UFC 266 took place over the weekend at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the main event, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski retained his 145-pound title with an incredible performance against Brian Ortega in a fight that included what many consider to be one of the best rounds in UFC title fight history.

Following this past weekend’s event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced the medical suspensions for the pay-per-view. Ortega faces a potential six-month layoff, along with eight other fighters.

For Ortega, he must have a right orbital blowout fracture cleared by an ophthalmologist or no contest until March 25, 2022.
