New, comments

Ouch

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 114: "Rampage vs. Evans," which took place on Saturday, May 29, 2010, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

With several of the bouts ending early (and violently), there were a handful of fighters who were flagged follow up visits with their doctors.

Chief among them is Mike Russow (broken left ulna/forearm) — who took a licking and kept on ticking against fellow up-and-coming heavyweight Todd Duffee. Also getting benched were Diego Sanchez (left-eye laceration), Dong Hyun Kim (right-eyelid laceration) and Efrain Escudero (scalp and left-eyelid lacerations).

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 114 injuries and their medical instructions:

Dan Miller: Suspended until June 29, no contact until June 20 (upper-eyelid laceration)
Todd Duffee: Suspended until July 14, no contact until June 29 (precautionary reasons)
Mike Russow: Suspended until July 14, no contact until June 29 (upper-eyelid laceration), additional suspension until Nov. 26 due to broken left ulna/forearm (unless cleared by a physician)
Diego Sanchez: Suspended until June 29, no contact until June 20 (left-eye laceration), additional suspension to run indefinitely until cleared by ophthalmologist (possible right-eye corneal abrasion)
Amir Sadollah: Suspended until June 29, no contact until June 20 (precautionary reasons), additional suspension until Nov. 26 due to possible right-hand and right-ankle injuries (unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor)
Dong Hyun Kim: Suspended until June 20, no contact until June 13 (right-eyelid laceration)
Efrain Escudero: Suspended until July 14, no contact until June 29 (scalp and left-eyelid lacerations)
Waylon Lowe: Suspended until June 29, no contact until June 20 (precautionary reasons), additional suspension until Nov. 26 due to possible chest injury (unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor)
Luiz Cane: Suspended until Nov. 26 (fractured left-maxillary sinus) unless cleared by ear-nose-throat doctor
Jesse Forbes: Suspended until June 13, no contact until June 6 (precautionary reasons)

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.
