WEC 46 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Varner vs Henderson'

Ouch

The California State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for WEC 46: "Varner vs. Henderson," which was held at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento on Saturday, Jan. 10, 2010.

None of the bouts ended in knockout, making the suspensions a little less lengthy. The two "Fight of the Night" participants, however, each were suspended after their war.

Will Campuzano is potentially out for 180 days for a left shoulder strain, while Coty Wheeler was suspended for the same amount of time for possible orbital and nose fractures. Wheeler was also slapped with a 60-day suspension for a nose laceration. 

Main event participant and former WEC lightweight champion, Jamie Varner, was suspended 180 days for a right foot and right knee injury. The good news is that clearance by a physician would end this suspension prematurely.

His opponent, meanwhile, WEC Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson, was not suspended, which was likely a nice change of pace after his suspension after his bout with Donald Cerrone at WEC 43.

Here is the complete list of WEC 46 injuries along with their medical instructions:

  • Jamie Varner: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier cleared by a physician (right foot and right knee injury)
  • Kamal Shalorus: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier if cleared by a physician (left thumb fracture)
  • Dave Jansen: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier if cleared by physician (face and right ear laceration). Suspended 60 days, can return earlier if cleared by physician (right thumb fracture).
  • Mackens Semerzier: Suspended 60 days (right eye lid laceration)
  • Charlie Valencia: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier if cleared by physician (left elbow fracture)
  • Akitoshi Tamura: Suspended 60 days; can return earlier if cleared by physiciaion (left eye lid laceration)
  • George Roop: Suspended 60 days (facial laceration)
  • Coty Wheeler: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier with CT clearance (possible orbital fracture and nose fracture). Also suspended 60 days (left side nose laceration)
  • Will Campuzano: Suspended 180 days; can return earlier if cleared by physician (left shoulder strain)

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.
