UFC 113 medical suspensions and injuries for 'Machida vs. Shogun II'


Medical suspensions have been released for the fighters competing at UFC 113: "Machida vs. Shogun II," which took place on Saturday, May 8, 2010, from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

With several of the bouts ending early (and violently), there were a handful of fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors -- though the entire roster was benched for at least seven days.

Chief among them is Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida (30 days) for the damage he sustained after Mauricio "Shogun" Rua sent him ass over tin cups in the first round of their main event rematch.

Joining him on the injured reserves is welterweight Jonathan Goulet (30 days) after "The Road Warrior" accidentally pulled the pin of "The Irish Hand Grenade" Marcus Davis.

What comes as a complete surprise is that Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald received just a seven-day suspension despite shattering his leg against John Salter.

Patrick "The Predator" Cote, also getting popped for just a week, broke his hand in a losing effort to Alan "The Talent" Belcher.

All other combatants competing on the May 8 fight card were issued seven or 14 day suspensions and are as follows:

Seven day suspensions

Alan Belcher
Jason MacDonald
Joe Doerksen
John Salter
Kimbo Slice
Marcus Davis
Matthew Mitrione
Mauricio Rua
Patrick Cote
Tom Lawlor

Fourteen day suspensions

Jeremy Stephens
John Hendricks
Jose Beltran
Josh Koscheck
Michael Guymon
Paul Daley
Sam Stout
Tim Grant
Tim Hague
Yoshiyuki Yoshida

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.
