Why don't you have a seat over there.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones lost a first round battle of arms en route to winning the main event war against Vitor Belfort at the UFC 152: "Jones vs. Belfort" pay-per-view (PPV) last Saturday night (Sept. 22, 2012) at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
"The Phenom" was unable to submit "Bones" with an armbar attempt in the opening frame, but still did enough damage to sideline the champ indefeinitely.
That's according to the UFC 152 medical suspensions list handed down earlier today by the Ontario Athletic Commission, which also earned Belfort a 30-day vacation for getting split open above his eye.
Other indefinite suspensions included Charles Oliveira, who went Electric Boogaloo at the hands of Cub Swanson, and Roger Hollett, who huffed and puffed his way to a unanimous decision loss against Matt Hamill.
That's not all.
After the jump, the complete list of UFC 152 injuries and medical suspensions (courtesy of MMA.tv):
Michel Gagnon: 14 days rest
Walel Watson: 14 days rest
Marcus Brimage: 14 days rest
James Hettes: 14 days rest
Cub Swanson: 14 days rest
Charles Oliveira: Indefinite suspension; needs CT/MRI for medical clearance (minimum 60 day suspension)
Matt Hamill: 14 days rest
Roger Hollett: Indefinite suspension; needs x-ray of left hand for medical clearance (minimum 30 day suspension)
Jon Jones: Indefinite suspension; needs x-ray of right arm for medical clearance (minimum 14 day suspension)
Vitor Belfort: 30 days rest; laceration over eye
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.
