UFC on ESPN 15 medical suspensions: Shana Dobson faces long layoff due to possible rib injury

Shana Dobson attacks Mariya Agapova on the ground at UFC on ESPN 15 on Aug. 22 in Las Vegas | Zuffa LLC

Shana Dobson picked up one of the biggest wins at UFC on ESPN 15, but could also be facing one of the card’s longest suspensions.

Of the 18 fighters who competed at UFC APEX in Las Vegas this past Saturday, Dobson is the only one potentially facing a suspension of longer than six months. “Danger” requires X-rays on her left ribs following a second-round TKO victory over the heavily favored Mariya Agapova, which took place on the UFC on ESPN 15 main card.

Pending orthopedic clearance, Dobson could be out of action until February of next year.

Headlining bantamweights Frankie Edgar and Pedro Munhoz escaped with minimal long term damage despite a hard-fought five-round battle, with both being diagnosed with lacerations that aren’t expected to shelve them for longer than two months.
