UFC Vegas 4

Three fighters face potential six-month layoffs following UFC Vegas 4 this past weekend.

Gian Villante is one of them as the former light heavyweight made his heavyweight debut in a third-round submission defeat to Maurice Greene on the main card. The New York native suffered an injury to his left hand during the fight and will require X-rays and clearance to avoid being out for six months.

Brendan Allen also faces six months out after suffering orbital, nasal, and sinus fractures in his unanimous decision war with Kyle Daukaus where he came out on top.

Khama Worthy is the final fighter facing six months out as he requires an X-ray on his right ankle and an MRI on his left knee along with clearance from a doctor. The welterweight defeated Luis Pena via third-round submission.

Meanwhile, the main eventers in Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker — who took part in a 25-minute war — will both be suspended until August 27.
