Sean O’Malley is on a roll, but fans may not see him compete again until summer.

According to the list of UFC 269 medical suspensions acquired by mixedmartialarts.com, O’Malley is one of four fighters who could be ineligible to compete until June pending clearance from a physician for potential injuries. In O’Malley’s case, he is listed as requiring an X-ray and MRI on his right hand/base of his thumb following his first-round TKO win over Raulian Paiva this past Saturday.

Others potentially facing six-month suspensions are Pedro Munhoz (right foot), Miranda Maverick (left foot), and Tony Kelley (left shoulder).

All four fighters competing in the evening’s two title bouts — Charles Oliveira, Dustin Poirier, Amanda Nunes, and Julianna Pena — avoided serious injury and received only minimal suspensions that do not extend past January.

UFC 269 took place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and was overseen by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
