Seven UFC 140 fighters sidelined for sixty days due to medical reasons

This past weekend may have featured some incredible action inside the Octagon but the evening’s participants apparently paid the price for their entertaining performances.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tito Ortiz, and Mark Hominick all received 60-day medical suspensions following this past Saturday’s UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida event.

All fighters from the card were placed on at least a fourteen-day suspension, most receiving the minimal sentence for precautionary reasons including UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones who submitted Lyoto Machida in the main event.

Nogueira’s suspension stems from a broken arm suffered against Frank Mir, while Ortiz needs a chest X-ray after his beating suffered by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Hominick suffered a knockout at the hands of Chan Sung Jung.

Here is the complete list of UFC 140 medical suspensions exceeded the standard two-week period:

Lyoto Machida: Suspended 30 days for cut over right eye
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira: Suspended 60 days due to submission loss, needs clearance from orthopedic surgeon
Tito Ortiz: Suspended 60 days due to TKO loss, needs chest X-ray and abdominal ultrasound
