UFC on FUEL TV medical suspensions and injuries for 'Sanchez vs Ellenberger' in Omaha


The Nebraska State Athletic Commission today issued its list of medical suspensions for the UFC on Fuel TV: "Sanchez vs. Ellenberger" event, which took place on Weds., Feb. 15, 2012, from the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska.

Not much here to report.

Of the 18 fighters booked to throw down at the network-televised event, only four were given mandatory vacations when all was said and done (via MMA Weekly), including Ronny Markes, who busted up his hand in a split decision win over Aaron Simpson.

Markes will be riding the bench until his physician gives him the green light to continue.

Also earning some time off were Vagner Rocha, Phil De Fries, and Dave Herman, who were all finished by way of (T)KO in their respective bouts.

UFC on Fuel TV featured a thrilling three round main event between Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger. While "The Dream" was able to keep himself awake against the power-punching "Juggernaut," the hometown hero proved to be too much for the former Ultimate Fighter and took home the unanimous decision win.

Also in action, Ronny Markes and T.J. Dillashaw both picked up decision wins while Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic each took home knockout victories. See who scored the Fight Night bonuses right here.
