The California State Athletic Commission released the medical suspensions for the fighters that took part in last night’s Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman event.

Only 8 of the fighters on the card received medical suspensions.

The largest of them were Julie Kedzie and Ovince St. Preux, who were both suspended for 180 days.

Kedzie took on Miesha Tate on the preliminary card and was extremely close to pulling off the biggest win of her career. That was before Tate grabbed her arm and secured a tight armbar to finish the fight late in the third round.

St. Preux came up on the winning end, when he knocked out TJ Cook in the third round. The fight looked to be over early in the first, however Cook kept pushing forward. Finally, in the third a left hook crushed Cook and knocked him out cold.
