UFC 191 didn’t bring us the slugfest we were expecting from former UFC heavyweight champions Frank Mir and Andrei Arlovksi, who met in the night’s co-main event.

Instead we got three rounds of lackluster action, leading to a split decision win for Arlovski. Unfortunately, both fighters seemed to have walked away from the fight with hand injures and could possibly face 6 month suspensions. Today the Nevada State Athletic Commission released their full medial report for UFC 191.

In the report is states that both heavyweights need to get clearance from doctors regarding hand issues, or the won’t be able to compete until March 5. Arlovski also needs to get an x-ray on his.

Also, Alex Chambers, who came out recently and said she blew her knee out during her fight with Paige VanZant, also could be out for six months.
