UFC on FUEL TV 7 medical suspensions and injuries: Tom Watson, Dustin Poirier and Ryan Jimmo facing six-month layoffs

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE

The list of medical suspensions and injuries has been released for those fighters competing at the UFC on FUEL TV 7: "Barao vs. McDonald" event this past weekend in London. Take a look at who's riding the pine for the next few months to lick their wounds.

The list of medical suspensions and injuries has been released today (Feb. 21, 2013) for those fighters competing at the UFC on FUEL TV 7: "Barao vs. McDonald" event this past weekend (Feb. 16), which took place at the Wembley Arena in London, England.

All 24 fighters competing across the pond were benched for 30 days (with 21 days no contact) for precautionary reasons, according to the official list at mixedmartialarts.com.

Unfortunately for Tom Watson, Ryan Jimmo and Dustin Poirier, their timeouts could last as long as six months, thanks to possible injuries sustained in their respective bouts.

"Kong" needs to have a couple of black and whites come back negative on his elbow while Jimmo's right thigh injury could be a "Big Deal." In addition, "The Diamond" will need to shine during his physical and prove to his attending physician his ankle is A-OK.

ZUFFA acted as its own commission in the absence of a regulatory body overseas. As always, fighters often return to action much sooner once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
