The Kentucky Boxing and Wrestling Authority, which issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC on Versus 3 last Friday, has updated its injuries and suspensions list for the "Sanchez vs. Kampmann" telecast which took place on March 3 from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
Event headliners Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann, who required post-fight physical exams to determine the length of their suspensions, have both been taken off the shelf indefinitely following their three-round bloodbath in "The Bluegrass State," according to a report from MMAWeekly.com.
"The Dream" is required to have his left orbital bone cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon before returning to action (click here to see why) while "The Hitman" must get clearance from an orthopedic doctor (right hand) prior to re-entering the Octagon.
But that's not all
Here is the complete list of UFC on Versus 3 injuries and their medical instructions:
Todd Brown: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Thiago Tavares: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
C.B. Dollaway: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Martin Kampmann: Suspended indefinitely unless right hand cleared by an orthopedic doctor.
Diego Sanchez: Suspended indefinitely unless left orbital bone cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon.
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.
