UFC 106 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Ortiz vs Griffin 2'

Ouch

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 106: "Griffin vs. Ortiz 2," which took place on Saturday, Nov. 21 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

With several of the bouts drawing blood, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors. Chief among them are Luis Cane (orbital fracture) — who went ass over tin cups courtesy of several well-placed Antonio Rogerio Nogueira left hooks  — and Marcus Davis (broken nose) -- who ate several crushing Ben Saunders knees en route to sustaining his first-ever knockout loss.

Former light heavyweight champion, Forrest Griffin, who wasn't kidding in his post-fight remarks when he revealed he broke his foot defeating Tito Ortiz via split decision.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 106 injuries and their medical instructions:

  • Forrest Griffin: Suspended Griffin until May 21, 2010, for a possible foot fracture; Minimum suspension until Dec. 22 and no contact until Dec. 13
  • Anthony Johnson: Suspended until Dec. 22 and no contact until Dec. 13
