The lot of competitors who took to the Octagon this past weekend at “UFN 24: Nogueira vs. Davis” have been issued mandatory breaks from action as a result from damage incurred at the event. However, the bulk of the suspensions are precautionary, as well as minimal in nature, meaning none are expected to miss a significant period of time.
According to the Washington State Department of Licensing and Regulation, seventeen UFC Fight Night 24 fighters will be clear to start training fully again by next week including co-headliners Phil Davis, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Anthony Johnson, and Dan Hardy.
On the next tier, tagged for month-long suspensions, are four individuals who suffered defeat on Saturday night. To the surprise of few Jon Madsen was among the group after having his match-up with Mike Russow stopped by ringside officials due to an extremely swollen left eye-socket.
The remaining names received slightly longer rulings with the exception of Michael McDonald whose availability appears to be pending based on further examination of an undisclosed injury. McDonald’s status was labeled as “indefinite”.
Here is a complete rundown of UFC Fight Night 24 medical suspensions:
7 Days: Alex Caceres / Phil Davis / Edwin Figueroa / Leonard Garcia / Dan Hardy / John Hathaway / Johny Hendricks / Anthony Johnson / Chan Sung Jung / Waylon Lowe / Sean McCorkle / Christian Morecraft / Antonio Rogerio Nogueira / Mike Russow / Amir Sadollah / Aaron Simpson
30 Days: DaMarques Johnson / Jon Madsen / Mario Miranda / T.J. Waldburger
