UFC Fight Night 14 medical suspensions and injuries fromNSAC

ufc fight night 14 medical suspensions
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its medical suspensions for UFC Fight Night 14: "Silva vs. Irvin," which took place on Saturday, July 19 at "The Pearl" at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Surprisingly, the list of wounded is extensive. However, the only serious injuries appear to be those suffered by Brad Blackburn (thumb) and Anthony Johnson (eye).

Heavyweight prospect Cain Velasquez popped up on the report with a possible knee injury. And if it’s confirmed he can be on the shelf for a little bit.

Fortunately, Brodie Farber –- the unlucky dude on the receiving end of a devastating Rory Markham head kick –- appears to be just fine.

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

James Irvin – "The Sandman" is suspended until September 3 with a right cheek laceration and there in no contact allowed until August 19.

Hermes Franca – The charismatic Brazilian fighter is suspended until August 19 and there is no contact allowed until August 10.
