UFC on FX 4 medical suspensions and injuries for those who competed at the "Maynard vs. Guida" event just last night (June 22, 2012) from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, were recently released by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board.
With several of the bouts ending early (and violently) on the cable-televised fight card, there were a few fighters who were flagged for follow up visits with their doctors.
That includes Spencer Fisher and Sam Stout, who closed out their trilogy by going back-and-forth for three rounds and 15 minutes, busting each other up in the process. The bout led to 45 day mandatory vacations for both, though Stout is out indefinitely pending an x-ray of his face.
Getting punched in it will do that to you.
Also riding the pine until further notice are Joey Gambino and Nick Catone, who both suffered stoppage losses on the FUEL TV broadcasted portion of the preliminary card. Gambino was choked out by Steven Siler, while Catone was put away by Chris Camozzi via technical knockout.
That's not all.
Gray Maynard: Suspended for 45 days due to a laceration.
Sam Stout: Suspended for 45 days for a facial laceration, and is also suspended indefinitely pending an x-ray of facial/orbital bones.
Spencer Fisher: Suspended for 45 days due to a facial laceration.
Ross Pearson: Suspended for 45 days due to a facial laceration.
Joey Gambino: Suspended for 90 days for a laceration, and is also suspended indefinitely pending a CT scan of facial bones.
Nick Catone: Suspended for 60 days due to a laceration, and is also suspended indefinitely pending an x-ray of his nose.
Luis Ramos: Suspended for 30 days due to a 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.
