The medical suspensions for last Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 11 card have been released, and as expected, co-main event star Josh Emmett is facing a long sit.

Emmett battled Shane Burgos in the UFC on ESPN 11 co-main event. While he ended up winning a unanimous decision, Burgos didn’t make it easy on him. Emmett wound up leaving the Octagon with a litany of serious injuries. Those injuries could keep him out of the cage for 180 days.


The UFC on ESPN 11 card was headlined by a heavyweight showdown between ranked contenders Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov. Blaydes, who won the fight by decision, is facing a 45-day sit due to a sliced lip, while Volkov has been handed a 30-day suspension.
