Middleweight title contender Jared Cannonier emerged from UFC Vegas 34 with a win over Kelvin Gastelum – and a potentially long medical suspension.

After outpointing Gastelum via unanimous decision, Cannonier needs to get his right food X-rayed for a potential break and could be shelved for six months unless cleared beforehand by a doctor, according to medical suspensions issued by the Nevada Athletic Commission and released by ABC records keeper mixedmartialarts.com.

A total of 16 fighters were suspended by the NAC, which regulated the event this past Saturday at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

In other notable suspensions, possible flyweight title challenger Alexandre Pantoja faces a six-month suspension unless he can get clearance for his knee, which may have gotten tweaked in a submission victory over Brandon Royval that earned him a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus.
