UFC 108 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Evans vs Silva'

Ouch

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva," which took place on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2010, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

With several of the bouts ending early (and viciously), there were a handful of fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors.

Chief among them are Dustin Hazelett (right orbital blowout/nasal fracture) — who was welcomed back after several months with several unanswered Paul Daley knuckle sandwiches  — and Mark Munoz (right hand/wrist) -- who may have busted something beating Ryan Jensen literally into verbal submission.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 108 injuries and their medical instructions:

  • Dustin Hazelett: Suspended until July 2, 2010, for right orbital blowout/nasal fracture unless physician clears him to return sooner; No contest until at least March 4, 2010, and no contact until Feb. 2, 2010.
  • Sam Stout: Suspended until Feb. 2, 2010, and no contact until Jan. 23, 2010, for a left forehead laceration.
  • Gilbert Yvel: Suspended until Feb. 2, 2010, and no contact until Jan. 23, 2010.
  • Jacob Volkmann: Suspended until Feb. 2, 2010, and no contact until Jan. 23, 2010.
  • Mark Munoz: Suspended until July 2, 2010, for right hand/wrist/elbow injury unless physician clears him to return sooner.
  • Ryan Jensen: Suspended until Jan. 23, 2010, and no contact until Jan. 16, 2010.
  • Mike Pyle: Suspended until Feb. 2, 2010, and no contact until Jan. 23, 2010.

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.
