UFC Fight Night 78 medical suspensions: Neil Magny, Diego Sanchez potentially out 180 days

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Welterweight headliner Neil Magny was one of nine fighters to receive an extended medical suspension potentially stretching up to 180 days in the aftermath of UFC Fight Night 78. The UFC released the event's medical suspension report to The Underground on Monday.

Magny captured a split decision over fellow UFC welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum in UFC Fight Night 78's main event, but it looks like he may injured his left hand in the process. He will be forced to receive doctor's clearance on the possible injury or sit on the sidelines for upwards of six months as it heals.

Likewise, eight other fighters at UFC Fight Night 78 were handed down 180-day suspensions for potential injuries sustained during the event. That list reads as follows: Diego Sanchez (left leg), Erik Montano (left ankle), Enrique Barzola (left shoulder), Leandro Silva (left shoulder and left elbow), Erik Perez (right foot), Hector Urbina (nasal), Scott Jorgensen (left hand), and Polo Reyes (left hand).

UFC Fight Night 78 took place Nov. 21 at the Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. The main card aired live on FOX Sports 1.
