WSOF 22 went down on Saturday night and had plenty of drama to go along with it. From the Diaz brothers brawl with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s crew, to the ridiculous actions by champion Rousimar Palhares in his title defense.

Palhares repeatedly raked Shields’ eyes during the fight, then held onto the fight ending kimura way too long after Shields tapped.

NSAC has released the official medical suspensions for the event:

  • Jake Shields: Requires orthopedic clearance on right shoulder and right knee, as well as ophthalmological clearance or no contest until 02/01/16; no contact regardless until 09/01/15 due to left eyebrow laceration
  • Marlon Moraes: Requires x-ray of nose, if positive then must be cleared by doctor or no contest until 02/01/16
  • Abubakar Nurmagomedov: Requires x-ray of right foot, if positive then must be cleared by doctor or no contest until 02/01/16
  • Gil Guardado: Requires fractured nose to be cleared by doctor or no contest until 02/01/16; minimum suspension no contest until 09/16/15, no contact until 09/01/15
