Your lip is bleeding? Better take two months off.

So you just suffered a concussion? 30 days should do the job.

Leonard Garcia looked the most beat up I've seen him.

Surprised he's not on there.

Incorrect, these are from the NSAC not from Zuffa, so if he had a injury hold it covers any kind of fighting in the state of Nevada. Most other states also abide by the medical suspensions from other commissions and won't let fighters fight if there is a hold from another state.

Incorrect.... it was the NJSACB not NSAC! Other than that, you were correct!

That is the most indefinite suspensions I have seen in a long time... What an odd card with freaky injuries!
