UFC 156 medical suspensions: Three winners lead cast of 13 ordered off

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Feb 04, 2013 at 6:05 pm ET

Thirteen fighters from this past weekend's UFC 156 event received medical suspensions, including fight winners Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Evan Dunham and Francisco Rivera.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently requested and today received the list of suspensions from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which regulated the event.



UFC 156 took place Feb. 2 at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

In the main event, featherweight champion Jose Aldo defended his belt with a unanimous-decision win over Edgar, who received a suspension of six months for a potential left orbital fracture. "The Answer" can be released early by a maxillofacial doctor.

Nogueira, victorious over Rashad Evans in the evening's co-main event, received an indefinite suspension for a potential injury to his right eye and must be cleared by an ophthalmologist.

Other notable suspension include potential six-month orders for preliminary card winners Francisco Rivera and Evan Dunham. Rivera's injuries were to his right wrist and hand, while Dunham may have suffered a right orbital blowout fracture. Both can be cleared early with additional testing.
