Bellator 85 medical suspensions include Michael Chandler, Pat Curran

This past week’s debut of Bellator on Spike TV was a massive hit ratings-wise, delivering the biggest numbers the MMA promotion had ever seen. However, the success apparently came with a price, as champions Michael Chandler and Pat Curran both exited Bellator 85 with the potential of spending at least six months on the sidelines if not longer.

According to the CSAC, Chandler may have broken his foot at some point in his successful title-defense against fellow 155er Rick Hawn, while featherweight Curran will also have to get his foot checked out for a possibly broken metatarsal stemming from a head-kick he landed on contender Patricio Freire. Each received a 180 day medical suspension pending the results of further testing.

A number of other stars came away injured as well including light heavyweight semifinalist Jacob Noe and seasoned veteran Renato Sobral.

Read below for a full list of Bellator 85 medical suspensions not including the standard seven-day sentences issued for precautionary reasons:

Jamie Yager – Suspended 180 days, no contact for 180 days (possible torn ligaments in both knees)
