The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation today issued its list of medical suspensions for those who competed at the UFC Fight Night 22: "Marquardt vs. Palhares" event which took place on Sept. 15 from the Frank Erwin Special Events Center in Austin, Texas.
It was a clean sweep across the board as every fighter that saw action last Wednesday night will also see a medical suspension in one form or another.
The majority of suspensions were for precautionary reasons -- save for a couple of banged-up participants who must follow up with their doctors after taking abuse during the Spike TV telecast.
Heading up the list of the walking wounded is Jared Hamman, who joins Brian Foster on the sidelines for six months (pending medical clearance) after their performances on the evening's undercard.
Main event muscle-head Rousimar Palhares, along with veteran Forrest Petz, were both slapped with 30-day timeouts. But that's not all.
Here is the complete list of UFC Fight Night 22 medical suspensions (courtesy of mixedmartialarts.com):
Suspended until 03/15/11:
Suspended until 10/16/10:
Suspended until 10/07/10:Rafael Natal
Suspended until 09/30/10:David Mitchell
Suspended until 9/25/10:
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.
