Ten UFC 114 fighters receive medical suspensions

With five former Ultimate Fighter seasonal champs slated for “UFC 114 – Rampage vs. Evans” it stood to reason at least one would walk away with a commission-mandated break once the evening’s action had concluded. According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission it actually appears three of them did, while neither Quinton “Rampage” Jackson or Rashad Evans was listed on the NSAC report.

Amir Sadollah, Efrain Escudero, and Diego Sanchez were listed alongside seven other Zuffa athletes competing at the event who will now be sidelined while healing up from injuries sustained in their respective fights. Sadollah, who lost a unanimous decision to Dong Hyun Kim, appears to have the longest break ahead of him based on “possible right-hand and right-ankle injuries” that will see him out of competition for more than six months without a doctor’s clearance. Sanchez will also need a medical professional’s approval before returning to the Octagon due to a “possible right-eye corneal abrasion” resulting in an “indefinite” vacation.

The above information was released by the NSAC and reported by MMAJunkie.

The complete list of suspensions is as follows:

Jesse Forbes – Suspended until June 13 with no contact until June 6 for precautionary reasons
Waylon Lowe – Suspended until Nov. 26 due to possible chest injury, though can be cleared early an orthopedic doctor following X-rays; suspended until June 29 with no contact until June 20 for precautionary reasons
