10 fighters might be sidelined as long as six months and Mickey Gall is out indefinitely. Let’s take a look at the UFC 235 medical suspensions.

Earlier today the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released the report that was highlighted by 10 fighters being sidelined for up to 180 days. Added to that is the requirement placed on Gall. That is, he must be cleared by a physician before he can train again, so he can forget about fighting for the time being.

Some notable names among the 10 fighters that could be out the next six months are Jon Jones, Anthony Smith, Zabit Magomedsharipov, and light heavyweight prospect Johnny Walker.
