Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori are both looking at six months off after their five-round war at UFC Fight Night 196. Vettori (18-4-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC)  outlasted Costa (13-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) in this past Saturday’s main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, and both men took quite a bit of damage in their fight. On Wednesday, MMA Junkie acquired a full list of the UFC Fight Night 196 medical suspensions handed out by the Nevada Athletic Commission from MixedMartialArts.com , the Association of Boxing Commission’s official record keeper. Costa, who was deducted a point in the second round for an inadvertent eye poke, needs an X-ray on his right foot and his left eye cleared by a doctor, or he could be sidelined for 180 days.
