Strikeforce medical suspensions and injuries for 'Los Angeles'

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) today issued its medical suspensions for the Strikeforce: "Los Angeles" event that took place this past Wednesday (June 16) at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Only four fighters were relegated to the bench after last week's festivities.

Renato "Babalu" Sobral was slapped with a 60 day suspension that includes no contact for 60 days (unless cleared by a doctor) for the left eyebrow cut suffered in his war with "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler.

Joining him in the 60/60 club was lightweight gamer Conor "Hurricane" Heun, who earned his suspension after suffering cuts to his eyebrows and cheeks courtesy of KJ Noons.

DREAM champion Marius Zaromskis was suspended for 45 days with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons and will be required to undergo a physical before his next fight.

In preliminary action, Marcus Kowal was stopped by Hugo Sandoval in the second round and as a result will be forced to take a 45 day vacation with no contact for 30 days. He also carries an additional 180 day suspension with no contact for 180 days due to a possible left knee injury (unless cleared by a doctor).

Just a quick reminder: Fighters can often return to action much quicker after obtaining medical clearance from a doctor. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
