UFC Vegas 37 medical suspensions: Devin Clark facing potential 6-month suspension for mouth fracture


Devin Clark suffered one of the more gruesome injuries at UFC Vegas 37 this past Saturday and it could keep him out of action until next year.

Five fighters from Saturday’s card are facing potential six-month medical suspensions including victorious headliner Anthony Smith (right knee) and Clark, who had to have his teeth pulled back into place after a lopsided decision loss to Ion Cutelaba in the co-main event. The official list of UFC Vegas 37 medical suspensions were acquired by mixedmartialarts.com.

Also potentially out until March are Joaquin Buckley (left orbital), Pannie Kianzad (right cornea), Rong Zhu (left thumb), and Gustavo Lopez (left infraorbital, right hand)
