By Tristen Critchfield Apr 13, 2021


Arnold Allen and Mackenzie Dern are among six athletes from UFC on ABC 2 who are facing six months on the sidelines following their bouts at Saturday’s event.

The Nevada Athletic Commission released a full list of medical suspensions from the card to mixedmartialarts.com. UFC on ABC 2 took place at the UFC Apex and saw Marvin Vettori take a unanimous decision over Kevin Holland in the evening’s middleweight headliner. Both Vettori and Holland are suspended until May 2 with no contact until April 25.

Allen, who took a three-round verdict against Sodiq Yusuff in the co-main event, will be suspended six months unless he gets doctor clearance on a left-hand X-ray. At a minimum the British featherweight is suspended until May 11 with no contact until May 2.

Dern did not exit her first-round submission victory against Nina Nunes unscathed, either. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt needs a right thumb X-ray and doctor clearance or she will be out until Oct. 8.

Four other fighters from UFC on ABC 2 are facing potential six-month terms: Julian Marquez (right hand), Jim Miller (left foot), John Makdessi (right foot) and Ignacio Bahamondes (nose, left hand).
