The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission today issued its list of injuries and medical suspensions for the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who participated in UFC Fight Night 62, which took place last Saturday night (March 21, 2015) inside Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Chief among the suspensions is the formerly undefeated welterweight contender Ryan LaFlare, who is facing a six-month sit after suffering an apparent right hand injury during his five round war against Demian Maia in the evening's main event (watch full video highlights here).

As for Maia, he can jump right back into the fray if he pleases, as the commission barely slapped him on the wrist with a three-week suspension after a 25 minute unanimous decision victory. Elsewhere on the card, Gilbert Burns, Shayna Baszler, and others were given six-month suspensions as well.

Check out the full list of UFC Fight Night 62 injuries and medical suspensions (via MMA Weekly):

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. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
