Those Alistair Overeem knees may have done a little more damage than initially expected at this past weekend’s UFC on ESPN+ 7. MMA Junkie today received the list of medical suspensions issued by the UFC, which self-regulated the April 20 event, which took place at Yubileyniy Arena in St. Petersburg, Russia. The night’s longest orders included headliner Aleksei Oleinik (57-12-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC), who sustained a potential broken rib in his first-round TKO loss to Alistair Overeem (45-17 MMA, 10-6 UFC). While Oleinik fought valiantly against his former training partner, having success on the feet in the early going, Overeem’s work from the Thai clinch eventually sent “The Boa Constrictor” crashing to the canvas. Oleinik is now facing a potential six months on the sidelines, unless he’s able to receive earlier clearance from an orthopedic doctor.
