The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board issued its list of medical suspensions for the UFC 128: "Shogun vs. Jones" event that took place on March 19, 2011, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

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 new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who may or may not have a broken one of the "Bones" in his hand thanks to the heavy punishment he dished out to former titleholder Mauricio Rua.

Jones was suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray, MRI and he will also need clearance from a physician before he is allowed to return. 

"Shogun" was also put on the shelf for a mandatory 60 days due to the severity of his technical knockout loss. He will also need a CT scan and clearance before he is allowed back.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 128 injuries and their medical instructions (via ESPN):

Jon Jones -- Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray and MRI but will also need clearance by a physician before he can return.

Shogun Rua -- Suspended a mandatory 60 days for technical knockout but is also out indefinitely pending a CT scan.

Kamal Shalorus -- Suspended a mandatory 60 days for technical knockout loss.

Brendan Schaub -- Suspended a mandatory 60 days for facial lacerations but is also out indefinitely pending a CT scan.

Mirko Filipovic -- Suspended a mandatory 30 days for knockout loss.

Luiz Cane -- Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray and will need to be cleared by a physician before he can return.

Eliot Marshall -- Suspended a mandatory 30 days for technical knockout loss but is also out indefinitely pending a CT scan.

Edson Barboza -- Suspended indefinitely pending X-ray's of his hand and knee.

Raphael Assuncao -- Suspended a mandatory 30 days for knockout loss.

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.
