UFC 96 medical suspensions and injuries

ufc 86 medical suspensions

The Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) recently issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 96: "Jackson vs. Jardine," which took place on Saturday, March 7 from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

With several of the bouts ending early, there were quite a few fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors, including Mark Munoz -- who was put to sleep by a Matt Hamill head kick -- and Mike Patt -- who was literally chopped down with leg kicks from Brandon Vera.

Gabriel Gonzaga will also need to give his melon a rest after Shane Carwin pounded it en route to a brutal first round technical knockout. And Pete Sell didn’t get off easy either thanks to a lopsided ass-kicking courtesy of Matt Brown.

Here is the complete list of UFC 96 injuries and their medical instructions:

Mark Munoz -- The former Oklahoma State University (OSU) wrestling powerhouse is suspended for 60 days
Mike Patt -- He is suspended for 30 days
Gabriel Gonzaga -- "Napao" is suspended for 60 days
Pete Sell -- "Drago" is suspended for 30 days
Jason Day -- "Dooms" is suspended for 30 days
Ryan Madigan -- The Octagon newcomer has been suspended indefinitely because of an eye injury

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.
