UFC on FOX 3 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Diaz vs Miller' in New Jersey

The New Jersey Athletic Control Board today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC on FOX 3: "Diaz vs. Miller," which took place just last night (Sat., May 5, 2012) from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

With several violent bouts on the card, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged for follow up visits to their doctors. In fact, 10 of the nights 24 competitors were suspended indefinitely.

Lavar Johnson was put on the shelf pending an X-ray of his left hand. You know, the one he used to club Pat Barry with until "HD" went crashing to the mat with the referee the only thing saving him from more damage. Despite his defeat, Barry was only given a 30 days suspension.

Also getting slapped with a significant vacations were co-main event fighters Johny Hendricks and Josh Koscheck, who battered and beat each other around the cage for three whole rounds spanning 15 minutes of back-and-forth action. Ultimately, "Big Rig" earned a split decision but both men will ride the pine pending eye exams.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC on FOX 3 injuries and their medical instructions:

Johny Hendricks: Suspended indefinitely pending an ophthalmological exam for his right eye

Josh Koscheck: Suspended indefinitely pending a CT scan of his facial bones

Alan Belcher: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his right hand

Rousimar Palhares: Suspended 30 days for a TKO loss

Lavar Johnson: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his left hand

Anthony Ferguson: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his left forearm

John Dodson: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his left hand

Pascal Krauss: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his right foot

Louis Gaudinot: Suspended indefinitely pending X-rays of both his left and right hands, suspended 30 days for tough fight

Danny Castillo: Suspended indefinitely pending an X-ray of his right hand

Dennis Bermudez: Suspended 60 days for a facial laceration

Nick Denis: Suspended indefinitely pending a facial CT scan and a CT scan of his head, suspended 30 days for tough fight

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.
