Ufcmedicalsuspensions_medium

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for the combatants who participated in the WEC 48: "Aldo vs. Faber" event which took place last Saturday (April 24) from ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California.

Chief among them are Urijah Faber (thigh/knee injury) -- who is suspended for 180 days after gutting it out in a losing effort to Jose Aldo. Mike Brown is suspended 45 days as a precautionary measure. Both Scott Jorgensen (metacarpal fracture) and Antonio Banuelos (nasal fracture) were suspended 180 days by the commission.

And of course, the war that officially kicked off the night, Leonard Garcia vs. Chan Sung Jung, saw both fighters medically suspended; 180 days for "Bad Boy" (hand fracture) and 240 days for the "Korean Zombie" (dista ulna shaft fracture/facial laceration).

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of WEC 48: "Aldo vs. Faber" injuries and their medical instructions:

Urijah Faber: Suspended 180 days (thigh/knee injury) unless cleared by physician.

Mike Brown: Suspended 45 days for precautionary reasons.

Scott Jorgensen: Suspended 180 days (metacarpal fracture) unless cleared by physician.

Antonio Banuelos: Suspended 180 days (nasal fracture) unless cleared by physician.

Leonard Garcia: Suspended 180 days (hand fracture) unless cleared by physician.

Chan Sung Jung: Suspended 240 days (dista ulna shaft fracture/facial laceration) unless cleared by physician.

Anthony Pettis: Suspended 180 days (foot fracture) unless cleared by physician.

Brad Picket: Suspended 180 days (clavicle fracture) unless cleared by physician.

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.
