UFC on FOX 5 medical suspensions

Quote:
Nine fighters, including headliner Nate Diaz, have received indefinite medical suspensions following this past weekend's UFC on FOX 5 event.

All fighters received mandatory minimum suspensions of seven days, though 13 suspensions will run longer than that.

MMAjunkie.com today requested and received the list of suspensions from the Washington State Department of Licensing.

UFC on FOX 5 took place this past Saturday, Dec. 8, at Seattle's KeyArena. The main card, which saw UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson defend his title with a dominant decision victory over Diaz, aired on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

In addition to Penn, co-main-event winner Alexander Gustafsson and main-card fighter B.J. Penn, who suffered a decision loss to Rory MacDonald, also face indefinite suspensions, which can end with doctor's clearance.

The full list of UFC on FOX 5 medical suspensions included:
  • Nate Diaz: suspended indefinitely, though an ENT doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 30 to 60 days (based on doctor's opinion) with no contact for 30 days
  • Alexander Gustafsson: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 30 days
  • Mauricio "Shogun" Rua: suspended 30 days
  • B.J. Penn: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days
  • Mike Swick: suspended 60 days
  • Jeremy Stephens: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 60 days
  • Yves Edwards: suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
  • Raphael Assuncao: suspended indefinitely, though an orthopedic doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended seven days
  • Joe Proctor: suspended indefinitely, though an ENT doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 60 days
  • Ramsey Nijem: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 30 days
  • Henry Martinez: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 60 days
  • Marcus LeVesseur: suspended 30 days
  • Nam Phan: suspended indefinitely, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days.

These things are always so funny to me. Watch guys just get run through 30 days. Another wins in a minute 180 days.

And it always seems to change even for the same injury.

I'm not seeing Abel Trujillo's name on that list, so may the God's have mercy on his next victim's soul, hopefully he gets a fight booked soon.

60 days for Martinez after the beating he took isn't all that bad considering in another state it could have been a lot worse.
