Hill sidelined for 18 months
A night of jaw-dropping injuries and stoppages at UFC's "Fight for the Troops" were reflected in medical suspensions issued by the North Carolina Boxing Authority on Thursday.
Hill underwent surgery for a broken leg Thursday morning at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville, N.C., according to a report from the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Expected to be out of action anywhere from a year to 18 months, Hill is currently resting in the hospital with his family. The former Ultimate Fighter standout is handling the injury well and is reportedly in good spirits.
Al-Hassan was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday night after suffering a dislocated right elbow.

Yoshida and Goulet were both treated and released for concussions. Goulet will also have his knee checked out when he returns to his native Canada.
In other notes, Assistant Supervisor Locklear estimated an audience of around 10,000 attendees at the event. In the spirit of its charity cause, the North Carolina Boxing Authority collected no taxes from promoter Zuffa, LLC for the show.
