The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill," which took place on Saturday, May 28, 2011, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

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 was pay-per-view headliner and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson, who could be riding the bench until November pending a left hand x-ray (or the green light from an orthopedic doctor) following his lopsided win over Matt Hamill.

Also getting a mandatory timeout was co-main event winner Frank Mir, who busted up his ribs en route to a three round unanimous decision win over Roy Nelson. Mir needs the doc's okay before he can return to cage fighting.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 130 injuries and their medical instructions:

Quinton Jackson: Must have left hand x-rayed; if positive then must be cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 11/25/11; minimum suspension, no contest until 06/28/11, no contact until 06/19/11.

Frank Mir: Must have left ribs cleared by doctor or no contest until 11/25/11; minimum suspension, no contest until 06/28/11, no contact until 06/19/11.

Stefan Struve: Suspended until 07/28/11; no contact until 07/13/11 for precautionary reasons.

Brian Stann: Must have right thumb x-rayed; if positive then must be cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 11/25/11; minimum suspension, no contest until 06/28/11, no contact until 06/19/11.

Jorge Santiago: Must clear left orbital fracture with ENT or ophthalmologist or no contest until 11/25/11.

Rafaello Oliveira: Suspended until 07/28/11; no contact until 07/13/11 for precautionary reasons.

Michael McDonald: Must have left shoulder cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 11/25/11; minimum suspension until 07/28/11, no contact until 07/13/11.

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.
