    I would have thought that some of the fighters who were almost knocked out should get treated similarly to the ones who actually got KOed.
    Mir and Machida appeared to have been hurt with strikes to the head before the end of their fights.
    Overall, I think the UFC does a great job looking after the fighters medically.

  2. Nick says:

    Pretty much everyone is suspended for 2 weeks just for precautionary reasons. Lol it’s going to be a hell of a lot longer than 60 days for Nog.

  3. tim g says:

    Why would chang sung jung need to be suspended he didn’t even get hit?

  4. Fortyb4five says:

    imo Big Nog is far from done. He looked really good in the Mir fight. Lets just hope he doesn’t try and get another rematch with Mir lol

  5. A.James says:

    Wow only 60 days for Nog? I guess he got a break. Get it?
