Sean O’Malley was one of several fighters injured at UFC 222.

UFC bantamweight up-and-comer Sean O’Malley highlighted a list of six fighters to be issued potentially lengthy medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC 222.

The Nevada Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized medical suspension report Monday to MMA Fighting.

O’Malley scored a harrowing victory over Andre Soukhamthath on UFC 222’s pay-per-view card, winning a unanimous decision despite badly injuring his leg in the third round. As a result of potential damage sustained in the contest, O’Malley will be forced to seek doctor’s clearance on his right foot and ankle or sit out 180 days before returning to active competition, per NAC officials.

The five other fighters who received similar potential 180-day medical suspensions were Cat Zingano, C.B. Dolloway, Hector Lombard, Bryan Caraway, and Adam Milstead.

UFC 222 took place March 3 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The night’s main card aired live on pay-per-view.
