UFC 84 medical suspensions and injuries

ufc 84 medical suspensions
If a fighter didn't break his nose last weekend at UFC 84: "Ill Will" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, then he is perhaps in the minority.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) recently issued its medical suspensions for the pay-per-view (PPV) event that took place on Saturday, May 24, revealing that Keith Jardine (possible), Wilson Gouveia, Kazuhiro Nakamura and Jason Tan all sustained nasal fractures in their respective bouts.

In addition, Tito Ortiz appears to have injured his left hand and wrist during his light heavyweight bout with Lyoto Machida, which will require X-rays and clearance from an orthopedic doctor before returning to competition.

Here's the complete list of injuries and their medical instructions:

Sean Sherk -- "The Muscle Shark" is suspended until July 9 and there is no contact until June 24 because of a right cheek laceration.

Keith Jardine -- "The Dean of Mean" must clear a possible nasal fracture with a doctor or no contest until November 21. His minimum suspension and no contest will last until July 24 and there's no contact until July 9.

Goran Reljic -- The Croatian is suspended until June 24 and there is no contact allowed until June 15.

Wilson Gouveia -- The American Top Team-trained fighter sustained nasal and maxillary sinus fractures that need to be cleared by an Ear Nose and Throat ENT specialist, as well as broken ribs that need to be cleared by a doctor, or no contest until November 21.
