UFC 145 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Jones vs Evans' in Atlanta

That's an ankle. And it belongs to UFC 145's Mac Danzig, who nearly lost it to Efrain Escudero over the weekend. The good news is he toughed it out and went on to win the lightweight fight.

The Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans," which took place on Sat., April 21, 2012, from the Philips Arena in Atlanta.

With several violent bouts on the card, including Michael McDonald turning out the lights of Miguel Torres with a devastating first round knockout on the pay-per-view (PPV) main card, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged for follow up visits to their doctors.

Chief among them, however, is Mac Danzig, who is out indefinitely unless cleared by a physician after Efrain Escudero nearly snapped off his ankle with a heel hook on the "Prelims" portion of the mixed martial arts (MMA) event.

And he's the guy who won.

Also getting slapped with a significant suspension was Che Mills, who was completely outclassed and thrashed for 1.5 rounds courtesy of Rory MacDonald, who went on to earn a lopsided technical knockout in the co main event of the evening.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 145 injuries and their medical instructions:

Jon Jones -- Suspended seven days for precautionary reasons.
Rashad Evans -- Suspended seven days for precautionary reasons.
Rory MacDonald -- Suspended seven days for precautionary reasons.
Che Mills -- Suspended 45 days for precautionary reasons.
