Josh Emmett is one of five competitors from UFC on ESPN 11 who is facing a potential 180-day suspension following this past Saturday’s card.

Emmett recently revealed that he suffered a torn ACL along with multiple other injuries in a unanimous decision triumph over Shane Burgos in the evening’s co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Emmett will be sidelined for at least 180 days unless he is cleared by an orthopedic doctor. Burgos, meanwhile, is suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days until a laceration under his right eye is cleared by a doctor.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission recently released a full list of medical suspensions from the event. Four other fighters from UFC on ESPN 11 are facing 180-day terms pending medical clearance: Roosevelt Roberts (left elbow), Tecia Torres (left hand), Brianna Van Buren (right hand) and Cortney Casey (right hand, wrist).
