The UFC Vegas 48 medical suspensions are in -- exclusively on MixedMartialArts.com -- and they reveal that eight of the 24 competitors on the card could be sidelined into the summer

In the night's main event, fast-rising light heavyweight talent Jamahal Hill dished out a filthy knockout win over UFC veteran Johnny Walker in the first round. In earning his fourth victory inside the Octagon, "Sweet Dreams" also did some damage to himself. He will need X-rays and an MRI on his elbow, forearm, and knee, respectively, to receive clearance to return to action. If not, he could be out of competition until August.
