UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida Official Injuries and Medical Suspensions

Seven fighters received 60-day medical suspensions following Saturday’s UFC 140 event, including main-card competitors Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tito Ortiz and Mark Hominick, from the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services. Every fighter from the December 10th card received suspensions of at least 14 days.

Nogueira’s 60-day suspension came as a result of a broken arm, a result of a nasty kimura finish by Frank Mir. UFC officials have revealed Nogueira will not require surgery, and and could return in as little as nine months.

Ortiz needs a chest X-ray and an abdominal ultrasound before he returns, and Hominick has been asked to undergo an MRI or CT scan after his TKO loss to Chan Sung Jung.
