All the scorecards have been read and all the wins and losses have been logged from UFC Vegas 31. However, that doesn’t mean the state of Las Vegas was done with the roster of athletes that competed on Saturday night inside the UFC Apex. Every fighter had to take part in their post-fight medical evaluations to find out when they are free to book their next fight in the Octagon.

The talent on this card fared far better than their contemporaries at UFC 264, where six athletes were facing a six-month ban from competition. From UFC Vegas 31, only co-main event participant Marion Reneau, and preliminary talents Malcolm Gordon and Alan Baudot face possible half-year suspensions. In Reneau’s case, it doesn’t really matter since this weekend saw her final bout as an active prizefighter. You can find all the medical stats below, exclusively on MixedMartialArts.com.
