UFC Fight Night 71 was the perfect middle of the week break for mixed martial arts fans and we were treated to highlight-reel main-event knockout. Oddly enough, Todd Duffee is not among the six fighters who could be sitting on the sidelines for six months!

Tony Ferguson was in an absolute war with Josh Thomson and both men will pay the ultimate price for their performances in the form of six month suspensions. Check out the full medical report, obtained by MMA Fighting below:
