Four fighters draw indefinite suspensions following UFC Charlotte

North Carolina Boxing and Combat Sports Commission recently released its list of injuries and medical suspensions for those fighters competing in the UFC Charlotte lineup last Sat. (May 13) on ABC from inside Spectrum Center in the “Tar Heel State,” with four of the 13 athletes suspended getting sat indefinitely — or until a physician clears them for return.

That’s according to MMA Junkie.

Nearly half the card escaped without medical suspension, including event headliners Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Jailton Almeida. “Bigi Boy” was submitted by “Malhadinho” inside the first frame (highlights here). As a result, the Surinamese striker will forfeit his spot within the Top 10 of the heavyweight division, which now goes to the Brazilian.

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.
