UFC Fight Night 37 medical suspensions and injuries: Michael Johnson and Jimi Manuwa take top time-outs

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared, it's time to find out who's worse for the wear following the carnage at UFC Fight Night 37 this past weekend across the pond.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) -- acting as its own regulatory body overseas -- has released the full list of injuries and medical suspensions for the UFC Fight Night 37 event, which took place on March 8, 2014 inside O2 Arena in London, England.

Leading the list of mandatory vacations is Jimi Manuwa, who not only suffered his first defeat (and a spot in the 205-pound title chase), but also a couple of damaged digits. Until a physician says otherwise, "Poster Boy" will be hanging around with nothing to do.

His opponent, Alexander Gustafsson, will take a month off just because.

Elsewhere on the card, Brad Pickett will serve out his six-month sit unless his doctor will sign off on a Octagon return, while Brad Scott, Michael Johnson, and Gunnar Nelson were also tagged with 180-day suspensions for injuries sustained in their respective battles.

That's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC Fight Night 37 medical suspensions and injuries (via mixedmartialarts.com):

Louis Gaudinot: Suspended seven days (precautionary reasons)
Phil Harris: Suspended seven days (precautionary reasons)

Danny Mitchell: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)
Igor Araujo: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)

Claudio Da Silva: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)
Brad Scott: Suspended 180 days or until MRI clearance of right shoulder

Mats Nilson: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)
Luke Barnatt: Suspended seven days (precautionary reasons)

Ilir Latifi: Suspended seven days (precautionary reasons)
Cyrille Diabate: Suspended seven days (precautionary reasons)

Omahi Arkmedov: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)
Gunnar Nelson: Suspended 180 days or until MRI clearance of left knee

Brad Pickett: Suspended 180 days or until MRI clearance of neck; minimum suspension 30 days (21 days no contact)
Neil Seery: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)

Melvin Guillard: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)
Michael Johnson: Suspended 180 days or until X-ray clearance of left hand; minimum suspension 30 days (21 days no contact)

Jimi Manuwa: 180 days or until orthopedic clearance of both thumbs, right finger; minimum suspension 30 days (21 days no contact)
Alexander Gustafsson: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)

Again, 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.
