There were plenty of finishes featured on the UFC Vegas 31 card this past Saturday night, but once the night was over, only three fighters on the entire card faced a potentially lengthy medical suspension.

At the top of the list was bantamweight veteran Marion Reneau, who suffered a third-round TKO loss in her fight against Miesha Tate in the co-main event.

While Reneau is looking at a possible six-month layoff due to the medical suspension issued by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, she actually announced her retirement following the fight so it’s unlikely the suspension will matter much to her in the end.

The medical suspension was issued due to a possible broken nose suffered by Reneau in the fight against Tate.

Malcolm Gordon picked up his first win inside the octagon with a unanimous decision over Francisco Figueiredo, but the Canadian fighter could be looking at a six-month suspension due to a possible injured hand suffered during the three-round battle on the prelims.

Heavyweight Alan Baudot will also be looking at a potential six-month suspension due to a possible broken nose after he fell to Rodrigo Nascimento in the opening bout on the card in Las Vegas.
