Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale medical suspensions
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today released its medical suspensions for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale that took place on Saturday, June 21, from The Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas.

It was actually a card that did not include many violent finishes or back-and-forth battles that can cause cumulative injuries. Accordingly, most fighters escaped their respective bouts with just minor injuries.

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

Evan Tanner — The former middleweight champion is suspended August 6 because of a left eye laceration and there is no contact permitted until July 22.

Diego Sanchez — "The Nightmare" is suspended until July 22 and there is no contact permitted until July 13.

Luigi Fioravanti – The American Top Team-trained fighter must have his right knee cleared by an orthopedic doctor or he will be unable to compete until December 19. He is suspended until at least July 22 and there is no permitted until July 13.

Spencer Fisher — "The King" is suspended until July 22 and there is no contact permitted until July 13.

Matthew Riddle — He must undergo x-rays on his fifth finger and have it cleared by a doctor otherwise he will be unable to compete until December 19. He is suspended until at least July 22 and there is no contact permitted until July 13.

Josh Burkman — "The People’s Warrior" is suspended until August 6 and there is no contact permitted until July 22.

Marvin Eastman — "The Beastman" is suspended until August 21 and there is no contact permitted until August 6.

Matt Brown — The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 alum is suspended until at least July 22 and there is no contact permitted until July 13.

Matt Arroyo — TUF 6 alum is also suspended until at least July 22 and there is no contact permitted until July 13.

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.
