UFC 74 medical suspensions from NSAC

ufc 74 medical suspensions
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued the medical suspensions from UFC 74: "Respect" this weekend. And the list of injured fighters is rather significant.

Randy Couture and Joe Stevenson, however, didn't make the list. That's odd because "The Natural" fractured his left forearm and "Daddy" sustained a broken nose.

Regardless, here's the skinny:

Gabriel Gonzaga -- "Napao" must have his broken nose cleared by an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician or he can't compete until February 22, 2008. The minimum suspension will last until October 25, 2007, and there's no contact until October 10, 2007.

Alberto Crane -- He must have his right medial orbital blowout fracture (Ouch!) cleared by an ophthalmologist or there is no contest until February 22, 2008. The minimum suspension will last until October 25, 2007, and there's no contact until October 10, 2007.

Kendall Grove -- "Da Spyda" is suspended until October 10, 2007, and there's no contact for the Hawaiian until September 25, 2007.

David Heath -- He is suspended until October 10, 2007, and there's no contact until September 25, 2007.

Antoni Hardonk -- Must have an MRI of his right shoulder or he can't compete until February 22, 2008. The minimum suspension will last until October 10, 2007, and there's no contact until September 25, 2007.

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
