UFC medical suspensions and injuries for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale

Ouch

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale which took place on Saturday, June 19, from the Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

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

Chief among them is Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine — who was sliced and diced en route to a majority decision loss to Matt "The Hammer" Hamill. Joining him on the injured reserves are fellow TUF guys Brad Tavares, Seth Baczynski and James McSweeney, who all suffered head lacerations in their respective bouts.

TUF 11 finalist, Kris "Savage" McCray, is also benched for a left eyebrow laceration suffered in his submission loss to the unscathed Court "Crusher" McGee.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of TUF 11 Finale injuries and their medical instructions:

Kris McCray: Suspended until Aug.. 3, no contact until July 19 (left-eyebrow laceration).
Matt Hamill: Suspended until Aug. 3, no contact until July 19 (right-eyelid laceration).

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.
