Darren Till is one of eight fighters facing a potential six-month medical suspension coming out of UFC Fight Night 191.

Till, who was dominated before losing to Derek Brunson by third-round submission this past Saturday, must receive doctor’s clearance after having a facial CT scan before he can return to action otherwise he must sit out six months. This is according to medical suspensions handed out by the Nevada Athletic Commission and obtained through MixedMartialArts.com, the Association of Boxing Commission’s official record keeper.

There is no mention of a knee injury after Till’s coach, Colin Heron, told ESPN that his fighter suffered a torn ACL roughly nine weeks ago but decided to fight anyway.

Brunson, meanwhile, received a clean bill of health coming out of his fifth consecutive win and is required to sit out only a minimum of 21 days.

Also of note, Modestas Bukauskas is looking at six months out after the fight-ending knee injury he sustained. Bukauskas (11-5 MMA, 1-3 UFC) was on the receiving end of an oblique kick to his left knee in the second round of his main card bout with Khalil Rountree, which immediately sent him tumbling to the ground.

Bukauskas’ scream forced the referee to wave the fight off as the former Cage Warriors champion is scheduled to undergo an MRI as soon as he flies home.
