Michael Bisping among group of medically suspended UFC on FX 7 fighters

UFC on FX 7 PosterLast weekend’s lineup for UFC on FX 7 delivered a number of entertaining efforts and impressive finishes. Fortunately, it appears the bulk of the athletes who took to the Octagon exited without any sort of serious injury. However, that’s not to say the entire group avoided any extended breaks from action before seeing a green-light to make a return to a ring.

According to a report from MMAWeekly, ten fighters received medical suspensions stemming from damage sustained at the show including the likes of Michael Bisping, Diego Nunes, and Ben Rothwell.

The most serious sentences in the lot were those handed to Nunes, C.J. Keith, and Wagner Prado. All three men could be out up to six months depending on if/when they receive a doctor’s clearance. Meanwhile, fighters like Bisping and Rothwell were issued shorter vacations from competition as the result of precautionary reasons.

The full list of UFC on FX 7 medical suspensions can be found below:

C.J. Keith – Suspended 180 days (must have right knee cleared by a physician)

    I jumped the gun a little yesterday, but today it seems like everything’s working on the site, it’s all updating for me and I haven’t gotten any errors, is it the same with everyone else?
