UFC 163 Injuries: Four fighters out up to 180 days including Phil Davis, “Korean Zombie”

With seven stoppages and a number of heated battles it’s no surprise the list of casualties attached to UFC 163 was a long one. Unfortunately, so are some of the medical suspensions handed down to the evening’s athletes including four fighters who could miss up to six months unless cleared for damage done in their respective rumbles.

As expected, headliner Chan Sung Jung will be out for awhile in order to recover from his separated shoulder. Joining him on the sidelines for the next 180 days barring a physician’s approval will be Ian McCall, Amanda Nunes, and Phil Davis. McCall broke his hand in an undercard bout, while Nunes appears to have injured a rib and Davis has a bum foot.

Also notable, featherweight champion Jose Aldo has 90 days to recover from a fracture in his right root. The 23-1 Brazilian broke a spoke in the wheel while kicking “The Korean Zombie” in the opening round of their main event match-up.

A full list of UFC 163 medical suspensions as issued by Brazil’s athletic commission can be found below:

Bristol Marunde – Suspended 45 days / 30 days no contact
