The Minnesota Office of Combative Sports on Wednesday (Oct. 10, 2012) released its list of medical suspensions and injuries for the fighters who competed at the UFC on FX 5: "Browne vs. Bigfoot" event last Friday night (Oct. 5) at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Getting some time off is heavyweight headliner Travis Browne, who was finished off in the first round by Antonio Silva. While he's only sidelined for 30 days, expect him to be out of action for 2-4 months after shredding his hamstring.
That's not all.
Here is the complete list of UFC on FX 5 medical suspensions and injuries (via MMA Weekly):
Travis Browne: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
Jay Hieron: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for laceration
Jussier da Silva: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
Danny Castillo: Suspended indefinitely pending neurological exam; minimum suspension 60 days (45 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
Diego Nunes: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for laceration
Bart Palaszewski: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for laceration
Aaron Simpson: Suspended 60 days (45 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much sooner once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
