The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 28 Finale injuries and medical suspensions for the athletes who competed at “Usman vs Dos Anjos” event last Friday night (Nov. 30, 2018) from inside The Pearl Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada were released by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
Leading the way in mandatory sits were Rafael dos Anjos and Kamaru Usman after their five-round affair which saw “The Nigerian Nightmare” score a unanimous decision win over “RDA” (see it again here).
