Uriah Hall and Sean Strickland were each given a six month vacation to recover from the damage they sustained in the UFC Vegas 33 main event that took place at the action’s APEX facility last Saturday. Night (July 31) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here “Prime Time” dropped a unanimous decision on “Tarzan” after five rounds of middleweight action.

Elsewhere on the map, Jared Gooden could be jaw-dropping after beating Niklas Stolze through January unless hand x-rays – and a doctor’s stamp – give “Nite Train” a chance to come back earlier.

Just a quick reminder: fighters often return much quicker if doctors give them the green light. The lengthy bans are in most cases just a precautionary measure. In addition, not all injuries are recorded at follow-up and often show up in follow-up exams.
