Strikeforce medical suspensions and injuries for "Feijao vs. Henderson" on March 5 in Columbus were released earlier today by the Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) for the Showtime telecast held last Saturday night at the Nationwide Arena in conjunction with the Arnold Fitness Expo.

Newly-crowned Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson stripped opponent Rafael Cavalcante of his 205-pound belt, as well as the ability to compete for sixty days after being victimized by "Hendo's" H-bomb.

Also getting knocked off kilter was J.P. Felty, who joins "Feijao" on the 60-day suspension list while Jorge Masvidal, Billy Evangelista, Jason Riley, and Ian Rammel were all shut down indefinitely.

But that's not all

Here are the complete Strikeforce: "Feijao vs. Henderson" medical suspensions and injuries (via MMA Weekly):

Rafael Cavalcante: Suspended 60 days (precautionary reasons)
Jorge Masvidal: Suspended indefinitely unless hand cleared by orthopedic doctor
Billy Evangelista: Suspended indefinitely unless eyes cleared by ophthalmologist
Billy Vaughan: Suspended 30 days (precautionary reasons)
Jason Riley: Suspended indefinitely unless eyes cleared by ophthalmologist; minimum suspension 30 days (precautionary reasons)
Ian Rammel: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance
Mitch Whitesel: Suspended 90 days (OAC mandatory period of inactivity for accumulated bouts)

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.
