WSOF 2 medical suspension and injuries: Arlovski and Johnson facing long layoffs

New, comments

Now that the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared, it's time to find out who's worse for the wear following the carnage at WSOF 2: "Arlovski vs. Johnson" last night in Atlantic City.

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB) today issued its list of medical suspensions for World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 2, which took place on Sat., March 23, 2013, from the Revel Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Main event competitors Anthony Johnson and Andrei Arlovski, who squared off in a three-round heavyweight bout that saw Johnson emerge the winner by unanimous decision (watch it here), both got the worst of night as "Rumble" walked away with a badly injured hand while "The Pitbull" suffered a broken jaw in the first round of the 15-minute contest.

Both men are suspended indefinitely and will need clearance from medical professionals before fighting again.

Here is the complete list of WSOF 2 injuries and their medical instructions (via Bloody Elbow):

Anthony Johnson suspended indefinite pending orthopaedic clearance of right hand

Andrei Arlovski suspended indefinite pending oral surgeon clearance of jaw

Tyson Nam suspended 30 days for KO

Marlon Moraes suspended indefinite pending x-rays of right hand and right foot

Paulo Filho suspended indefinite pending CT head scan; 30 days for recovery

Josh Burkman suspended indefinite pending x-ray of right wrist/hand

Aaron Simpson suspended indefinite pending CT head scan and facial bones; 60 days for KO

Gesias Cavalcante suspended 60 days for laceration

Justin Gaethje suspended indefinite pending x-ray of right thumb

Alexandre Pimentel suspended indefinite pending CT head scan; 60 days for KO

Cameron Dollar suspended 30 days for KO

Igor Gracie suspended indefinite pending orthopaedic clearance of right clavicle

Tom Marcellino suspended indefinite pending CT head scan, neurology clearance, and orthopaedic clearance of right foot

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.
