UFC welterweight prospects Alan Jouban and Mike Perry highlighted a list of eight fighters to receive potential 180-day medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC on FOX 22, according to information released this week by the California State Athletic Commission.

Jouban and Perry opened up the FOX main card with a contentious contest that Jouban carried into a patient unanimous decision victory. Both fighters will now be required to sit out for a potential 180-day period or receive physician clearance on potential fractures (Jouban, left knee; Perry, nose) before being allowed to return to active competition, per commission orders.

In addition to Jouban and Perry, six other fighters received similar 180-day medical suspensions for possible injuries sustained during the event: Cole Miller (right hand and fifth left finger fractures), Colby Covington (orbital fracture), James Moontasri (nose fracture), Josh Emmett (rib fracture), Irene Aldana (right eye fracture), and Hector Sandoval (left hip pain).

UFC on FOX 22 took place at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. Former Invicta FC champion Michelle Waterson submitted Paige VanZant via first-round rear-naked choke in the night’s strawweight main event.
