The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale: Bisping vs. Miller," which took place on Sat., Dec. 3, 2011, from the The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With several violent bouts ending early, including seven finishes on the 10-fight card, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors.

Unsurprisingly, Jason Miller will potentially be forced to ride the pine until June 2012 because of a hammered honker, which Michael Bisping blasted for about 10 straight minutes until "Mayhem" was too tired (and apparently beat up) to defend himself beyond the third round.

Also getting a mandatory timeout was Dennis Bermudez, who appeared to have his elbow badly dislocated thanks to an overzealous Diego Brandao armbar. Surprisingly, Bermudez was only slapped with a light suspension, meaning the damage looked far worse than it actually was, while Brandao -- TUF 14's featherweight winner -- sustained an injured hand and jaw that could keep him out of action for up to six months, too.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of TUF 14 Finale injuries and their medical instructions/restrictions:

Michael Bisping -- Suspended until Jan. 3, 2012 (no contact until Dec. 25, 2011) because of right eye hematoma.
Jason Miller -- Suspended until 6/3/12 (no contact until Jan. 18, 2012) because of nasal fracture unless physician clears him to return sooner. Minimum suspension even with physician clearance until Feb. 2, 2012.

Dennis Bermudez -- Suspended until Jan. 3, 2012 (no contact until Dec. 25, 2011) because of injured left elbow.

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.
