Medical suspensions have been released for the fighters competing at UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage," which took place on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011, from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

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 the second coming himself, Jon Jones, who was given 180 days on the sidelines unless he gets clearance from a doctor for his bum feet, in which case he'll only be laid up for 45 days.

The price one pays to be the best and all that. 

Joining him on injured reserve is Aaron Riley, who had his jaw shattered by "The Boogeyman," Anthony Ferguson, in their preliminary card lightweight brouhaha. Riley will be riding the pine for 180 days unless he gets physician's clearance with 90 days mandatory vacation.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 135 injuries and their medical instructions (via MMAWeekly.com):

Jon Jones -- Suspended 180 days or 45 days with physician's clearance

Quinton Jackson -- Suspended 60 days, no contact 45 days

Matt Hughes -- Suspended 45 days, no contact 30 days

Mark Hunt -- Suspended 45 days, no contact 30 days

Ben Rothwell -- Suspended 60 days, no contact 45 days

Takanori Gomi -- Suspended 30 days

Aaron Riley -- Suspended 180 days, 90 days with physician's clearance

Nick Ring -- Suspended 30 days

Eddie Yagin -- Suspended 30 days

Cole Escovedo -- Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact

Ricardo Romero -- Suspended 60 days, 45 days no contact

James Te Huna -- Suspended 180 days for injuries or 30 day suspension with physician's clearance.

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.
