UFC on FOX 7 medical suspensions: Cormier, Diaz, Mein among long terms

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Apr 22, 2013 at 1:30 pm ET

daniel-cormier-26.jpgAll 24 competitors from this past Saturday's UFC on FOX 7 received medical suspensions. Of those, main-card fighters Daniel Cormier, Nate Diaz and Jordan Mein were given longer terms.

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

UFC on FOX 7 took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card aired live on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Headliners Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez, who fought to a split-call with champ Henderson retaining his title, received mandatory seven-day terms.

Cormier, who outpointed ex-UFC champ Frank Mir in the night's co-feature, received a six-month term for a swollen right middle finger. He needs a doctor's clearance to lift the suspension.

Overwhelmed by strikes for the first time in his career, Nate Diaz received a two-month term for facial lacerations and a 45-day term for a TKO loss to Josh Thomson.

Jordan Mein, who stepped in for Dan Hardy in a welterweight bout against Matt Brown, left the octagon with perhaps the most significant damage of main-card competitors. He is suspended for six months for a potential left jaw and right orbital fracture, as well as two months for a laceration to his nose and 45 days for a TKO loss.

Damn, Mein really got it rough from Brown, every bit as bad after the fact as it looked during the fight.

Hopefully Comrier doesn't have to significant of a hand injury.

Weird that he and Cormier got the same time, 6 months. 1 for possible broken jaw and orbital, other for...swollen middle finger.

Its because that could indicate a broken finger/hand. And if Cormier is cleared, he doesn't actually have to serve the entire suspension.

Are Cormier's hands made of glass? He spent most of that fight punching Frank in the body.....

Yeah I know I'm aware of all of that. Still looks funny though.

Glover got 6 months after the Maldonado fight. It happens from time to time. Almost always reduced.

EDIT: UFC 139 had Hendo, Shogun, Mayday, Tibau all get 6 months.
