‘UFC 134: Silva Vs. Okami’ Complete Medical Suspensions

A total of 16 fighters from this past Saturday’s UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami card were issued medical suspensions, with four of them facing 180-day suspensions.

Forrest Griffin, Stanislav Nedkov, Raphael Assuncao and Ian Loveland were all hit with the 180-day max suspensions, though all can be cleared down to lesser penalties with clearance from a doctor.

Griffin suffered possible injuries to his right-foot and jaw after being defeated by Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the co-main event. He is suspended 45 days, with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Nedkov is out due to a possible nasal fracture, as is Assuncao. Loveland’s suspension comes from a possible chest injury.

Yushin Okami, who lost in the main event to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, received a 45-day suspension, with 30 days of no contract. Rousimar Palhares, Ross Pearson, Brendan Schaub, Dan Miller and Felipe Arantes were all given the same medical suspensions as Okami.

Luis Ramos is out 40 days, with no contact for 30, Yves Jabouin and Luiz Cane have 30 days and no contact for 21, and Erick Silva, Thiago Taveras and Yuri Alcantara were suspended seven days for precautionary reasons.
