Drwal and his camp are hoping the injury is just a bad sprain of the knee.

An MRI on Monday will reveal the full nature of the injury.

Drwal was submitted in just 45 seconds in his preliminary card matchup with Rousimar Palhares when he slipped on the Bud Light logo in the center of the canvas and the Brazilian dove in to finish the fight.

Palhares cranked the heel hook immediately, and Drwal tapped repeatedly. Nevertheless, Palhares held on to the move until referee Kevin Mulhall instructed him to let go. Drwal was left in obvious agony, and the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board suspended Palhares for 90 days "for not releasing (the) submission."

Palhares has apologized for any injury he caused, and he told MMAjunkie.com that he did not intentionally injure his foe.

Drwal's camp did not express any anger toward Palhares and instead noted that is was "tough luck" to have slipped on the first kick of the fight.

Drwal was suspended indefinitely pending the results of today's X-rays, though with the negative result, he should be cleared by the commission to return. Of course, Monday's MRI should reveal how long the potential sprain – or ligament issue – will keep the slugger out of action.
