Ufcmedicalsuspensions_medium

Strikeforce medical suspensions and injuries for "Diaz vs. Daley" on April 9 in San Diego were released earlier today by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) for the Showtime telecast held last Saturday night at the Valley View Casino Center.

Reigning welterweight champion Nick Diaz was expecting a suspension following his first round stoppage of Paul Daley, and while he probably wasn't referring to the eye laceration he received courtesy of "Semtex," he's still riding the bench for a minimum of 60 days (60 days no contact).

Daley joins him on the injured reserves for 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons.

Also getting shelved for "precautionary reasons" was Japanese import Tatsuya Kawajiri, who's likely to need all 45 of his days (30 days no contact) to recover from the shellacking he took at the hands of Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez.

But that's not all

Here are the complete Strikeforce: "Diaz vs. Daley" medical suspensions and injuries (via MMA.tv):

Nick Diaz: Suspended 60 days (60 days no contact) for eye laceration

Paul Daley: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons

Tatsuya Kawajiri: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons

Keith Jardine: Suspended 60 days (60 days no contact) for right eyebrow and nose laceration

Hiroyuki Takaya: Suspended 60 days (60 days no contact) for right cheek laceration

Brett Albee: Suspension 60 days (60 days no contact) for nose and temple laceration

Saad Awad: Suspended 180 days (180 days no contact) for fractured right hand

AJ Matthews: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons

Paul Song: Suspended indefinitely for right elbow pain

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.
