The UFC 163 medical suspensions have been released, and it is no surprise that the event left a number of fighters beat up and off the mats for some considerable time.

 

During the main event of UFC 163, the injuries were apparent.  It became obvious to viewers that Jose Aldo had hurt his foot in the first round.  The leg-kick-heavy game of Aldo transformed itself to a boxing match with some wrestling mixed in, a role that the champion filled by exceptional skill and out of sheer necessity.  Then the fight ended when Chan Jung Sung, popularly known as the ‘Korean Zombie,’ dislocated his shoulder while throwing a punch at the champion- an injury Aldo capitalized on to end the fight.

 

But those two are only the tip of the iceberg, as 6 fighters on the card received suspensions of 90 days or more.
