Arnold Allen, Mackenzie Dern Facing 6-Month Terms – MMA Root



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

The Nevada Athletic Committee released a full list of medical suspensions from the card at mixedmartialarts.com. The UFC on ABC 2 took place at the UFC Apex and saw Marvin Vettori make a unanimous decision for Kevin Holland in the middleweight title. Both Vettori and Holland are suspended until May 2 without contact until April 25.

Allen, who received a three-dimensional verdict against Sodik Youssef in the main event, will be suspended for six months unless he gets permission from a doctor on a left-sided x-ray. At least the British featherweight will be suspended until 11 May without contact until 2 May.

Dern did not leave its victory in the first round against Nina Nunis, without falling. The Brazilian black jiu-jitsu belt needs a right thumb x-ray and a doctor’s license or it will be out by October 8th.

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