The Vancouver Athletic Commission has released its list of medical suspensions for the UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" event that took place on June 11, 2011, at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

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 preliminary card fighter Jason Young, who busted up his foot by putting it upside Dustin Poirier's head in a losing effort on the Facebook streamed portion of the card.

"Shotgun" will be riding the pine for 180 days pending an x-ray of said foot. In the event he gets cleared, he's still out for 45 days with 30 no contact.

Former heavyweight title contender Shane Carwin was also put on a mandatory vacation for no less than 60 days thanks to his busted up grill after three rounds in the cage with Junior dos Santos.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 131 medical suspensions:

Darren Elkins -- Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact.

Michihiro Omigawa -- Suspended for a mandatory 9 days of rest.

Aaron Rosa -- Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact.
