UFC Vegas 34 is in the rearview for fans and media, but the lasting effects of a night inside the Octagon will remain for the participants on last week’s card.

Four competitors on the 12 bout card could be sidelined for the next six months after incurring injuries in their fights. Including one-half of the night’s main event in Jared Cannonier. He was victorious in his middleweight bout with fellow top-10 talent Kelvin Gastelum. However, the third-ranked fighter will need a negative result on a left foot x-ray or be forced to sit on the sidelines until February.
