WSOF 2 Medical Suspensions: Andrei Arlovski, Anthony Johnson both out indefinitely

WSOF2-PosterWorld Series of Fighting delivered an action-packed event last night with WSOF 2 but, as often is the case, the carnage did not come without a cost to those involved. Thirteen of the evening’s participants received medical suspensions related to damage sustained in their bouts including headliners Anthony Johnson and Andrei Arlovski.

According to a NJSAC list provided to MixedMartialArts.com, Johnson will be out indefinitely after injuring his hand in a hard-fought outpointing of Arlovski and needs to have it cleared before returning to the ring. Likewise, Arlovski’s jaw was visibly a mess during the tilt and for good reason apparently, as he will have to get an oral surgeon’s approval before being cleared for competition.

Read below for a full rundown of medical suspensions:

  • Tom Marcellino: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan, neurology clearance, and orthopedic clearance of right foot
  • Igor Gracie: Suspended indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance of right clavicle.
  • Cameron Dollar: Suspended 30 days for knockout
  • Alexandre Pimentel: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan, 60 days for knockout
  • Justin Gaethje: Suspended indefinitely, pending x-ray of right thumb
  • Gesias Cavalcante: Suspended 60 days for laceration
  • Aaron Simpson: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan and facial bones; 60 days for knockout
  • Josh Burkman: Suspended indefinitely pending x-ray of right wrist/hand
  • Paulo Filho: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan; 30 days for recovery
  • Marlon Moraes: Suspended indefinitely, pending x-rays of right hand and right foot
  • Tyson Nam: Suspended 30 days for knockout
