UFC 154 Medical Suspensions: All fighters escape event without major injury

Last weekend 24 fighters took to the Octagon at UFC 154 and accomplished a rare feat in that the entire lot exited the show without having suffered any sort of significant damage. While the regulatory board overseeing the Montreal event certainly issued medical suspensions given the grueling nature of MMA, all of the involved competitors will be clear to compete again in the immediate future rather than risking a serious stint on the sidelines due to injury.

According to a report from MMAFighting, Martin Kampmann and Patrick Cote topped the list of affected competitors with 60 day sentences stemming from each having endured a knockout loss. Kampmann was flattened in less than a minute by Johny Hendricks in the evening’s co-headlining clash, while Cote was awarded a Disqualification win after being beaten into unconsciousness with a series of strikes to the back of his head.

Meanwhile, headliners Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit were each suspended for approximately a month due to cuts/swelling sustained in their beautifully brutal five-round affair.

Check out the complete list of UFC 154 medical suspensions below not including fighters with 14 days or less relating to precautionary reasons:

Georges St-Pierre: 28 days
Chad Griggs: 30 days
Carlos Condit: 30 days
Mark Bocek: 45 days
Mark Hominick: 45 days
Martin Kampmann: 60 days
Patrick Cote: 60 days

    Good to hear. Condit got cut up quite a bit. Glad it wasn’t as bad as it looked.

  • Considering that huge slash on Carlos and all the stick marks and small cuts on Georges that’s incredible. Cool let Condit take on Fitch and let GSp take on Hendricks or Silva. Just get these two back fighting ASAP. Both guys are fresh in the minds of fans and neither geatting hurt is a miracle that the ufc and both fightersshould capitalize on to build their brands
