MMA: UFC Fight Night-Ellenberger vs Perry Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The complete list of injuries and medical suspensions was released on Tuesday for those mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters participating in UFC Fight Night 108, which took place last Saturday night (April 22, 2017) inside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts was FOX Sports 1 headliners Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov. The former will only need a week on the sidelines while the latter — who was knocked around for 25 minutes in “Music City” — will need quite a bit more.

That’s not all.

Power-punching welterweight Mike Perry could be looking at a six-month suspension after his “Platinum” finish over Jake Ellenberger, who only gets 60 days for his knockout loss on the televised main card (see it again here).

The complete list of UFC “Nashville” medical suspensions, courtesy of MMA Junkie, below:

  • Cub Swanson: suspended 7 days with 7 days no contact
  • Artem Lobov: suspended 60 days or until cleared by physician and 30 days no contact for right foot
  • Diego Sanchez: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Marcos Rogerio de Lima: suspended 60 days or until cleared by physician and 30 days no contact for cut
  • Eddie Wineland: suspended 60 days and 60 days no contact or until cleared by physician
  • Joe Lauzon: suspended 60 days and 60 days no contact or until cleared by physician for cut
  • Stevie Ray: suspended 30 days with 14 days no contact for cut
  • Mike Perry: suspended 180 days and 180 days no contact or until cleared by physician for nose
  • Jake Ellenberger: suspended 60 days with 45 days no contact
  • Sam Alvey: suspended 180 days and 180 days no contact or until cleared by physician for left ankle
  • Dustin Ortiz: suspended 60 days with 45 days no contact
  • Scott Holtzman: suspended 180 days and 180 days no contact or until cleared by physician for possible right foot fracture
  • Michael McBride: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for hard bout
  • Cindy Dandois: suspended 180 days and 180 days no contact or until cleared by physician for possible right foot fracture
  • Joe Proctor: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Matt Schnell: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

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.
