UFC 160 Medical Suspensions: Glover Teixeira, Mark Hunt, and more

There seems to be a relationship between how exciting an event is and the number of injuries attached to the action. As such, it’s no surprise a slew of scrappers walked away from UFC 160 with some serious medical issues given the overall excellence involved.

The Nevada Athletic Commission recently released a list of fighters who have been suspended for health-related reasons with some of the lengthiest sentences going to stars like Gray Maynard, Mark Hunt, and Glover Teixeira. Fortunately, victorious heavyweights Junior dos Santos and champ Cain Velasquez were not among them.

Specifically, Maynard, Hunt, and Teixeira could be out until November based on injuries sustained in their respective rumbles. Maynard’s affliction relates to his eye having potentially suffered some sort of injury, while Teixeira needs to get an x-ray on a hand/elbow and Hunt has a broken toe. Also concerning, bantamweight Brian Bowles appears to have hurt his right hand, drawing concern from fans familiar with his past history of broken paws.

The full list of UFC 160 medical suspensions can be found below:

Estevan Payan – Suspended until 7/25 with no contact until 7/25
