The UFC Vegas 36 medical suspensions are in — exclusively at MixedMartialArts.com — and eight talents from the card could be on the sidelines for up to six months.

The event was headlined by a battle of top-10 middleweights that saw fifth-ranked Derek Brunson score a rare submission victory in the third round over seventh-ranked Darren Till. The co-main event featured a heavyweight tilt between top-15 heavyweights, Tom Aspinall and Sergey Spivak. England’s Aspinall was victorious in that clash by first-round technical knockout, however, Aspinall and fellow UK talent Till were two of the eight fighters that will need medical clearance before they are allowed to set a date for their Octagon returns.
