UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida Medical Suspensions

| by

Saturday’s UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida card from Toronto, Canada was a brutal event to say the least. Well the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services backed up those claim by suspending every fighter on the card received at least a 14 days. However seven fighters, including Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tito Ortiz and Mark Hominick received much stiffer suspensions of 60 days following their defeats.

Hominick was quickly stopped by Chan Sung Jung in the main card first bout and along with his 60 day suspension he was also asked to undergo an MRI or CT scan. After being dropped and ultimately stopped with body shots, Ortiz must undergo a chest X-ray and an abdominal ultrasound before he returns to action.

Nogueira suffered the most horrific of stoppages on the night as his opponent Frank Mir broke his arm with a kimura. He was issued a 60 day suspension but it’s being reported that he’ll be out at least nine months recovering from the break.
