Dana White praises Anthony Pettis for KO win, UFC Nashville

UFC Nashville medical suspensions: Anthony Pettis among four others to get 180 days

The Octagon went to Nashville, Tennesse for what was a great night of fights. In the main event, Anthony Pettis was moving up in weight to take on Stephen Thompson. There, Pettis shocked many and knocked Thompson out in the second round.

Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Curtis Blaydes dominated Justin Willis for a decision win. Also on the card saw Maycee Barber score a second-round TKO win over JJ Aldrich.

With a card like this, many fighters are destined to get weeks if not months off due to suspension and UFC Nashville was no different. Pettis, Blaydes, Luis Pena, Barber, and Aldrich were the five fighters to potentially get a 180-day suspension.
