UFC 115 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Liddell vs Franklin'

Ouch

The Vancouver Athletic Commission (VAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 115: "Liddell vs. Franklin," which took place on Saturday, June 12, 2010, from the GM Place in Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada.

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 Rich "Ace" Franklin — whose bone-crunching win over Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell left him in a pink cast. Also getting benched was Pat Barry in his loss to Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. "HD" went home with a foot that looked like it belonged to Thunder just before he exploded in Big Trouble in Little China.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 115 injuries and their medical instructions:

Rich Franklin: Suspended 60 days (60 days no contact). Additional suspension of 180 days (left forearm) unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor.

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.
