Both components of this past Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 28 headliner are facing potential six-month medical suspensions.

Sean Strickland needs an X-ray of his left thigh and knee as well as dental evaluation of his lower prosthetic tooth, and if he doesn’t receive clearance, he will be out until Jan. 28. At a minimum, Strickland is sidelined with no contact until Aug. 31. Hall, meanwhile, must have a right orbital fracture cleared by an ENT doctor or he will be out until Jan. 28. At a minimum, “The Ultimate Fighter 17” finalist is suspended until Sept. 30 with no contact until Sept. 15.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission released a full list of medical suspensions to mixedmartialarts.com. Strickland captured a clear cut unanimous verdict against Hall in the UFC on ESPN 28 main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
