UFC 96 medical suspensions

The Ohio Athletic Commission issued medical suspensions to six fighters who competed at this past weekend's UFC 96 event, which took place March 7 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Gabriel Gonzaga, Mark Munoz, Pete Sell, Jason Day and Mike Patt have all been issued suspensions of 30 to 60 days, and UFC newcomer Ryan Madigan had been shut down indefinitely.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) received the list of medical suspensions from the OAC.

Gonzaga, who suffered a first-round TKO to Shane Carwin in the night's co-main event, was issued a 60-day suspension.

Munoz, who suffered a dramatic knockout via head kick delivered by Matt Hamill, was also issued a 60-day suspension. Munoz lay motionless on the canvas for a few minutes after the knockout, but he ultimately left the cage under his own power.

Sell, whom Matt Brown defeated in lopsided fashion, has been suspended 30 days for the first-round TKO loss.

Michael Patt, who was stopped in the second round by Brandon Vera's leg kicks, was issued a 30-day suspension.

So too was Jason Day, who was TKOd in the first round by Kendall Grove in a preliminary bout.

Finally, UFC newcomer Ryan Madifan, who suffered a first-round knockout to Tamdan McCrory, has been suspended indefinitely. He must receive medical clearance for an injured eye before returning to competition.

Headliners Quinton Jackson and Keith Jardine both left the event without suspensions. However, Jackson, who won the fight and earned a title shot against current champ Rashad Evans, plans to have an injured jaw checked out this week. If it and all other ailments check out OK, he could fight Evans at UFC 98 on May 23. It would be Jackson's third fight in less than five months.

No suspension for Jardine and Jackson really?

If his jaw's ok, I think Page is taking the fight. Hope he'll be 100% though.

All he has to do is get cleared by a doctor after whatever happened heals, not that big of a deal.

Oh ok, I misinterpreted it. I'm wondering if he got poked in the eye while getting GnP'd.
