UFC Fight Night 40 injuries and medical suspensions: See who was benched for unsportsmanlike conduct

Keep that mouthpiece in your grill, where it belongs!

Mandatory vacations!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be losing 11 of its 26 fighters who competed at the UFC Fight Night 40: "Brown vs. Silva" mixed martial arts (MMA) event last Saturday night (May 10, 2014) inside the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

At least until their physicians clear them to come back.

Headliners Matt Brown and Erick Silva, in particular, will need to check in with their respective doctors to make sure they're ship-shape after pounding on each other in "Queen City." In addition, Ed Herman and Manny Gamburyan will be riding the pine indefinitely following a couple of close calls.

And Johnny Eduardo is being penalized for launching his mouthpiece into the stands (yuck).

Here's the complete list of UFC Fight Night 40 injuries and medical suspensions from Ohio Athletic Commission (via MMA Junkie):

Matt Brown: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance on right elbow. Minimum suspension 45 days.
Erick Silva: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance on jaw. Minimum suspension 60 days.
Lorenz Larkin: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Erik Koch: Suspended for 30 days.
Ruan Potts: Suspended for 60 days.
Ed Herman: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance on right hand. Minimum suspension 30 days.
Eddie Wineland: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance on jaw. Minimum suspension 60 days (TKO loss and stitches in lip area).
Johnny Eduardo: Suspended 30 days for unsportsmanlike conduct (throwing his mouthpiece into the stands).
Manny Gamburyan: Suspended indefinitely pending doctor's clearance on right eye.
Ben Wall: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Anthony Lapsley: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).

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. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
