UFC 157 medical suspensions: Henderson, Koscheck among possible six-month terms

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Feb 27, 2013 at 1:55 pm ET

All fighters from this past weekend's UFC 157 event received medical suspensions, with eight receiving longer than the standard seven-day term.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently requested the list of suspensions from the California State Athletic Commission, which regulated the event. The commission on Wednesday released the card's official results, including the medical suspensions.

UFC 157 took place Feb. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Of note, co-main event fighter Dan Henderson is suspended for six months unless he is cleared earlier for a possible fracture in his right hand. Henderson dropped a split decision to former champ Lyoto Machida, who advanced to a light heavyweight title shot with the win.

Former title challenger Josh Koscheck could be out as long as six months, as well, unless a doctor clears him before that for a possible injury to his right rotator cuff. In addition, he's out for 45 days minimum for his TKO loss to Robbie Lawler to open the pay-per-view main card.

Josh Neer received a six-month term for a possible broken nose, though he can be cleared by a doctor and return before that. And preliminary-card fighter Brock Jardine is out six months unless a doctor clears him early for an injury to his left thigh.

Other medical suspensions of note include 60 days for Brendan Schaub, Dennis Bermudez and Yuri Villefort, though they can be cleared early by physicians.

In Saturday's main event, inaugural women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey defended her title with a first-round armbar submission against Liz Carmouche. Both women received the CSAC's standard seven-day minimum precautionary suspension.

The full list of UFC 157 medical suspensions includes:

Now if that isn't sad I don't know what is. Schaub lays on a dude for 3 rounds and ends up with a lip laceration that has him on a 60 suspension while his opponent has the minimum precautionary.

This is funny:

Brendan Schaub: 60-day suspension unless cleared by physician for upper lip laceration
Lavar Johnson: seven-day minimum suspension (precautionary)

This is true meaning of LnP.
