Medical suspensions have been released for the fighters competing at UFC 112: "Invincible," which took place on Saturday, April 10, 2010, from the Concert Arena in Abu Dhabi and come courtesy of Fighter's Only.
With several of the bouts ending early (and violently), there were a handful of fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors.
Chief among them is Demian Maia for the damage he sustained after Anderson Silva started breakdancing on his face. Joining him on the injured reserves is welterweight Renzo Gracie after the jiu-jitsu phenom had his leg battered into oblivion by former division champion Matt Hughes.
But that's not all.
Here is the complete list of UFC 112 injuries and their medical instructions:
Brad Blackburn: 45 days no contest (30 days no contact).
Demian Maia: 60 days no contest (45 days no contact). CT Scan required on head, face and orbital with Doctor's clearance or minimum 180 days.
Kendall Grove: 30 days no contest (21 days no contact).
Matt Veach: 45 days no contest (30 days no contact).
Phil Davis: 30 days no contest (21 days no contact).
Renzo Gracie: 30 days no contest (21 days no contact).
Rick Story: 30 days no contest (21 days no contact). X-ray required on right knee and left elbow with Doctor's clearance or minimum 180 days.
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.
