Only one competitor was issued a medical suspension following the Sept. 17 UFC Fight Night 15 event at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb.

It belongs to Joe Vedepo, who suffered a first-round knockout loss to Alessio Sakara in a preliminary bout.

The UFC newcomer was issued a 45-day suspension due to "heavy head blows," the Nebraska Athletic Commission told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Vedepo (7-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC), an Iowa-based fighter who won the Midwest Cage Championship middleweight belt just prior to signing with the UFC, had clipped and staggered Sakara early in their bout. However, Sakara quickly recovered, avoided a takedown, and then connected on a head kick that set up the KO victory at 1:27 of the first round.
