UFC Fight Night 38 medical suspensions and injuries: Shogun snags six-month sit

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 38 this past weekend in Brazil.

The Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) on Monday issued its list of injuries and medical suspensions for those fighters participating in the UFC Fight Night 38: "Shogun vs. Henderson 2" event, which took place last Sunday night (March 23, 2014) at Nelio Dias Gymnasium in Natal, Brazil.

Not too bad, all things considered.

Most of the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters competing on the FOX Sports 1 main card, as well as the Fight Pass "Prelims," were sat for a couple of weeks for precautionary reasons, including headliner Mauricio Rua, who needs to have his nose re-attached after Dan Henderson knocked it into the fifth row.

See it again here.

Joining Rua on the six-month sideline is Michel Prazeres, who can return sooner if X-rays of his hand return negative. "Trator" mangled his mitt in a unanimous decision win over Mairbek Taisumov, who also earned a mandatory vacation in Brazil.

That's not all.

Here is the full list of UFC Fight Night 32 medical suspensions (via MMA Fighting):

Godofredo Pepey: Suspended 14 days (7 days no contact)
Noad Lahat: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact)
Hans Stringer: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact)

Cezar Ferreira: suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Dan Henderson: suspended 45 days, 30 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.
