UFC Fight Night 185 medical suspensions: Derrick Lewis among 10 facing lengthy layoffs

Despite notching a huge victory at UFC Fight Night 185, Derrick Lewis may be forced to sit out for a long period of time.

Lewis (25-7 MMA, 16-5 UFC), who scored a big knockout win of Curtis Blaydes (14-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in the second round of their main event clash in Las Vegas, will need doctor clearance for his right hand and wrist or he could face up to six months on the sidelines.

Also facing potential 180-day terms is Charles Rosa, who suffered a unanimous decision loss to Darrick Minner. Rosa (13-5 MMA, 4-5 UFC) must have an X-ray on his right hand.

Surging heavyweight Chris Daukaus (11-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) also needs an X-ray on his right hand after stopping Aleksei Oleinik in the first round.
