The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released a list of the medical suspensions resulting from last Saturday night’s UFC 125: Resolution fight card, which went down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Main eventers Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard both received suspensions following their stellar lightweight title fight. Edgar has a minimum suspension three month suspension, with no contact until February 16th and a conditional six month suspension for a nasal fracture, which must be cleared by an ear, nose and throat specialist if he hopes to compete before July. Maynard got off a little easier, taking home a one month suspension with no contact until January 23rd due to facial lacerations.
Middleweight fighter Chris Leben is suspended until February 16th with no contact until the first of that month for precautionary reasons following his second-ever knockout loss, which came against Brian Stann.
Light heavyweight Brandon Vera was given a minimum suspension of three months, with no contact until February 16th. Like Edgar, Vera must have his very-broken nose cleared by an ear, nose and throat specialist in order to compete prior to July 1st of the coming year.
Featherweight Josh Grispi is suspended minimally until February 16th with no contact until the first of that month following his spoiled UFC debut against Dustin Poirier. He must have his jaw x-rayed and cleared by an oral and maxillofacial specialist in order to avoid a six month suspension.
Phil Baroni was given a minimum three month suspension with no contact until February 16th for precautionary reasons and must also have a nasal fracture cleared to dodge a six month suspension.
Marcus Davis took home the same suspension as Baroni: a three month minimum with no contact until February 16th, also with a six month suspension pending a specialist’s clearance of his nasal fracture.
Diego Nunes is suspended until the 23rd of this month with no contact until the 16th of this month for the swollen left eye he overcame to take out Mike Brown.
Rounding out the lis of suspensions is Greg Soto, who must receive clearance by an orthopedic specialist for a left shoulder injury; otherwise, he will be suspended for six months.
