Affliction Banned medical suspensions and injuries from CSAC

ufc 86 medical suspensions

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) today issued its medical suspensions for the Affliction: "Banned" pay-per-view (PPV) event that took place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 19.

And even though Fedor Emelianenko and Tim Sylvia spent just 36 seconds inside the ring, both fighters were slapped with 180-day medical suspensions for different reasons. Of course, the pair can return to action sooner with medical clearance -- something that they will need if they intend to make the encore event on October 11 as expected.

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

Tim Sylvia -- Suspended for 180 days and no contact for 180 days because of a left elbow injury unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

Fedor Emelianenko -- Suspended for 180 days and no contact for 180 days because of a right hand injury unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

Edwin Dewees -- Minimum 45-day suspension with no contact for at least 30 days because of a technical knockout. Suspended for 180 days and no contact for 180 days because of an undisclosed injury unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

Pedro Rizzo -- Minimum 45-day suspension with no contact for at least 30 days because of a knockout.

Mike Whitehead -- Suspended for 180 days and no contact for 180 days because of a left hand injury unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

Terry Martin -- Minimum 45-day suspension with no contact for at least 30 days because of a technical knockout.

Vitor Belfort -- Suspended for 180 days and no contact for 180 days because of an undisclosed injury unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

Fabio Nascimento -- Suspended for 45 days and no contact for at least 30 days.

Ben Rothwell -- Minimum 45-day suspension with no contact for at least 30 days because of a technical knockout. He is suspended for 60 days and no contact for 60 days because of an ear lobe laceration unless he receives clearance from a physician to return sooner.

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.
