It will be some time before we see Josh Emmett back in action following UFC Vegas 3.

Emmett took on Shane Burgos in the co-main event this past weekend and was able to earn the victory via unanimous decision following a back-and-forth war.

It was all the more impressive considering he was compromised as he tore his ACL early on in the first round. By the end of the fight, he had also suffered a partial MCL tear, focal impact fracture of the femur, damaged cartilage and swelling.

As a result, it’s no surprise to see the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) hand him a six-month layoff to recover. However, Emmett will likely be out of action much longer than that as torn ACLs usually require at least nine months of recovery.

Other fighters to get 180-day suspensions were Roosevelt Roberts, Tecia Torres, Brianna van Buren and Courtney Casey.

Main event winner Curtis Blaydes is suspended for 45 days with no contact for 30 days due to a laceration on his lip while Emmett’s opponent Burgos is also out for 45 days.
