Jose Aldo, Rob Font both potentially out six months with fractured orbitals as UFC Vegas 44 medical suspensions revealed

Jose Aldo and Rob Font got into a war on Saturday night in the main event of UFC Vegas 44.

Both Aldo and Font landed damaging shots but the difference-maker was Aldo’s power as he dropped Font a couple of times to get the win. Yet, both men did not save the fight uninjured as the medical suspension was revealed and both men are potentially out six months due to a fractured orbital.

Along with Jose Aldo and Rob Font suffering potential six-month suspensions, Jamahal Hill must need clearance on his elbow or he will also join them with a six-month sit.
