WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz medical suspensions and injuries

The Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) today issued its list of medical suspensions for the combatants who participated in the WEC 47: “Bowles vs. Cruz” event which took place last Saturday, March 6th, 2010 from The Nationwide Arena in Columbus.

Here’s a list of the fighter suspensions:

Brian Bowles: Suspended indefinitely (hand injury) unless cleared by an orthopedic doctor.
Miguel Torres: Suspended indefinitely (forehead laceration) unless cleared by a surgeon.
Chad Mendes: Suspended sixty days (cut).
Danny Castillo: Suspended sixty days for precautionary reasons.
Courtney Buck: Suspended sixty days for precautionary reasons.
Bendy Casimir: Suspended sixty days for precautionary reasons.

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
