UFC Vegas 28 is now officially in the books as the Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the post-fight medical updates for all the participants, exclusively to MixedMartialArts.com. In the headliner, Jairzinho Rozenstruik returned to his winning ways with a thunderous first-round buzzer-beater knockout of Augusto Sakai. While the co-main event featured another battle of ranked heavyweight talent as Marcin Tybura weathered an early storm and stopped Walt Harris by technical knockout with less than a minute left in the first round.

The majority of the 28 fighters on the card were able to make it through their medical exams without needing too long of a break before they can start looking ahead to their next bookings. However, Iliri Latifi, Sean Woodson, and Alan Patrick will need clearance from a few specialists before they can compete again in 2021.
