UFC on ESPN 10 medical suspensions: Cynthia Calvillo and Marvin Vettori face six-month terms

Two headlining winners at UFC on ESPN 10 could be out for a half-year unless they get medically cleared beforehand.

Newly minted UFC flyweight Cynthia Calvillo, who outpointed Jessica Eye at this past Saturday’s event, needs an MRI for her right shoulder. If “positive” for an unknown injury, she faces a six-month suspension, per the Nevada Athletic Commission, which on Monday released a full list of suspensions stemming from the event.

Calvillo noted her need for an MRI after her win and said she’d like to make a quick turnaround if healthy enough to fight. She targeted the upcoming “Fight Island” events in Yas Island, United Arab Emirates.

Co-headliner Marvin Vettori also could be suspended six months if an MRI on his right knee is positive after a first-round drubbing of Karl Roberson.

In total 11 fighters on the 10-bout card were suspended by the NAC. Here’s a full list of suspensions from UFC on ESPN 10.
