community news, Four UFC Nashville Fighters Face Six Month Suspensions

The Tennessee Athletic Commission on Tuesday released the medical suspensions stemming from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 108: Swanson vs. Lobov, which took place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Twenty-six fighters competed on the card, but only four face up to a six-month suspension if not cleared by a doctor for injuries sustained during their bouts. Several other fighters faced 45 or 60-day suspensions, which aren’t likely to have much effect on their expected returns to the Octagon.

Cub Swanson won the night’s main event, taking a five-round, unanimous-decision victory over Artem Lobov, while Al Iaquinta knocked out Diego Sanchez in the co-headliner.
