UFC on FX 3 medical suspensions and injuries for those who competed at the "Johnson vs. McCall" event this past Friday night (June 8, 2012) from the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., were recently released by the Florida State Boxing Commission.
With several of the bouts ending early (and violently) on the network-televised fight card, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged for follow up visits with their doctors.
That includes Eddie Wineland and Sean Pierson, who were sliced and diced in winning performances over Scott Jorgensen and Jake Hecht, respectively. "Young Guns" will join Wineland on the injured reserves after getting put to sleep late in the second stanza.
Also riding the pine until further notice is Matt Grice. "The Real One" could be faced with a possible broken left foot, probably as a result of using it to kick the stuffing out of Leonard Garcia en route to a unanimous decision win.
That's not all.
Check out the complete list of UFC on FX 3 injuries and medical suspensions after the jump.
Josh Neer: Suspended 60 days (precautionary reasons)
Eddie Wineland: Suspended 60 days (forehead laceration)
Scott Jorgensen: Suspended 60 days (concussion)
Lance Benoist: Suspended 45 days (right eyebrow and left eye lacerations)
Matt Grice: Suspended indefinitely unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor (possible left foot fracture)
Justin Salas: Suspended 30 days (chin laceration)
Sean Pierson: Suspended 45 days (scalp laceration)
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.
