MMA Analysis: UFC 135 Medical Report

| by

Saturday’s UFC 135 from Denver, Colorado saw 20 fighters put it all on the line to enter the Octagon. Today the Colorado Office of Boxing* issued its medical suspensions for UFC 135 that included the light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, along with 11 others.

The biggest suspension of the night goes to Aaron Riley, who had his fight stopped between rounds due to a possible broken jaw. Potentially it could be the second time Riley has had his jaw broken in a fight and the injury landed him a 180 days suspension or 90 days with a physician’s clearance.

Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and James Te Huna both won their respected bouts, but both face a potential 180-day suspension which can be lowered with physician’s clearance.
