via assets.sbnation.com

People fight. And when they do, they tend to get hurt.

Strikeforce Challengers 19: "Larkin vs. Rossborough" was no exception following the Showtime broadcast last Friday night (Sept. 23, 2011) from "The Pearl" at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The "Sin City" fight card produced a litany of banged-up fighters, including Lavar Johnson, Magno Almeida and Bobby Green, who all have a date with the X-Ray machine to make sure everything is still in proper working order.

But that's not all.

A complete list of injuries and medical suspensions for Strikeforce Challengers 19: "Larkin vs. Rossborough," after the jump.

Nick Rossborough: Suspended until 10/24/11 with no contact until 10/15/11 (forehead laceration).
