The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the medical suspensions for the fighters who competed at this weekend's UFC 91 "Couture vs. Lesnar" show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas:

-Randy Couture has been suspended until January 15, 2009 with no contact until December 31, 2008 for precautionary reasons after his TKO loss to Brock Lesnar.

-Josh Hendricks has been suspended until December 16, 2008 with no contact until December 7, 2008 for precautionary reasons after his TKO loss to Gabriel Gonzaga.

-Tamdan McCrory has been suspended until May 15, 2009 or until he gets his right foot & right ankle x-rayed to rule out fracture after his submission loss to Dustin Hazelett. If results are positive must then be cleared by a doctor.

-Aaron Riley has been suspended until December 16, 2008 with no contact until December 7, 2008 for precautionary reasons after his decision win over Jorge Gurgel.

-Jorge Gurgel has been suspended until May 15, 2009 or until he gets an MRI of his left shoulder & he must also have a right ankle x-ray to rule out fractures after his decision loss to Riley. If results are positive he must then be cleared by an orthopedic doctor.

I am absolutely AMAZED that McCrory's suspension didn't involve his elbow or shoulder. That guy must be made of rubber above the waist. I'm also curious why Brock was suspended for the win, I'm guessing because of the cut maybe.

Maybe due to a broken finger or something?

I'm suprised Rafael dos Anjos didn't get a medical suspension after his head almost got taken off.
