  • Clay Guida: Suspended 180 days with no contact for 180 days due to a possible eye injury but can be cleared early by an ophthalmologist; regardless, suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons unless cleared early by a doctor
  • Paul Buentello: Suspended indefinitely until ribs X-rayed and cleared by a doctor; regardless, suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days for precautionary reasons

  • Shane Nelson: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days due to a cut but can be cleared early by a doctor
  • Johny Hendricks: Suspended three days with no contact for three days for precautionary reasons
  • Ricardo Funch: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons but can be cleared early by a doctor
  • Rousimar Palhares: Suspended three days with no contact for three days for precautionary reasons

  • Edgar Garcia: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days for precautionary reasons but can be cleared early by a doctor
  • Kevin Burns: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons
  • As stated, some of the fighters can be cleared by a doctory beforehand without having to serve the entire suspension. So some may be back in training and scheduled to fight again pretty soon barring any major setbacks.  It looks like Matt Wiman, Paul Buentello, and Clay Guida have the potential to be out of action the longest.  Amazingly, Diego Sanchez is only out for 60 days even though it looked as if he took the absolute worst beating on the entire card that was aired.
