UFC NEWS – UFC 141 Medical Suspensions Report


The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today revealed the list of fighters who have received medical suspensions following their efforts in last weekend’s UFC 141 event.

Twelve fighters received mandatory suspensions, four of which could be out up to six months due to injuries suffered while in the cage.

UFC 141 took place this past Friday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The end-of-year pay-per-view featured former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and newly signed heavyweight stand-out Alistair Overeem in a one-sided beat down handed down by Overeem.

It was Lesnar, Diaz, Matyushenko and Gamburyan who received the lengthiest of suspensions and could be out of action for up to six-months unless cleared by doctors.
