The Nebraska State Athletic Commission had an easy time determining medical suspensions for those fighters who competed on the UFC on Fuel: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger card recently with only four being issued a mandatory break from competition.
Ronny Markes, who said he suffered a broken right hand during his fight with Aaron Simpson, was handed an indefinite break, needing a doctor’s clearance to return to action. Markes himself has said he will undergo surgery to correct the problem and hopes to be back by summertime.
Meanwhile, Vagner Rocha, Philip De Fries, and Dave Herman were all given 30-day suspensions, the State’s standard following a knockout/TKO loss.
Main event fighters Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez were both free of any suspensions after their grueling three-round war which saw Ellenberger claim a victory in his proverbial backyard of Omaha though clearly both will need a little time off to heal up from cuts/contusions.
