UFC Fight Night Medical Suspensions: Alan Jouban Facing 6 Months for Broken Hand

By Tristen Critchfield Jul 12, 2016


Alan Jouban could be out for up to six months following his “Fight of the Night” winning performance against Belal Muhammed at UFC Fight Night “Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez.”

The Nevada Athletic Commission recently released medical suspensions from the event, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Thursday night. In the evening’s main event, Eddie Alvarez claimed lightweight gold with a first-round technical knockout of Rafael dos Anjos, who was suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days. Alvarez did not receive a suspension.

Jouban dropped Muhammad three times in the opening two rounds of their welterweight clash but had to hold on as his opponent mounted a furious rally in the final stanza. Jouban won via unanimous decision. He must receive clearance for a fractured left hand or face a 185-day suspension. At a minimum he is suspended for 30 days with no contact.

Two other fighters are looking at possible six-month layoffs following UFC Fight Night 90. Mitch Clarke needs clearance on his right knee, while Reginaldo Viera needs clearance of a right orbital and nasal fracture.
