UFC On Versus 5 Medical Suspensions

The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services today issued its list of medical suspensions forĀ UFC on Versus 5: “Hardy vs. Lytle,” which took place on Sunday, August 14, 2011, from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

It’s no surprise that a good number of fighters were suspended due to medical reasons with the brutality of some of those fights. Six fighters have been suspended indefinitely.

Here is the complete list of UFC on Versus 5 injuries and their medical instructions

Dan Hardy: Suspended for 30 days (precautionary reasons)

Jim Miller: Suspended indefinitely (head injury); must pass neurological exam and CT scan prior to return

Ben Henderson: Suspended for 30 days (left elbow injury); must pass X-ray prior to return

Charles Oliveira: Suspended for 30 days (precautionary reasons)

Amir Sadollah: Suspended indefinitely (head injury); must pass neurological exam and CT scan prior to return

Duane Ludwig: Suspended indefinitely (knee and head injuries); must pass neurological exam, X-Ray and CT scan prior to return

C.B. Dollaway: Suspended indefinitely (head injury); must pass neurological exam and CT scan prior to return

Kyle Noke: Suspended indefinitely (knee injury); must pass MRI prior to return

Jim Hettes: Suspended for 30 days (head laceration)

Cole Miller: Suspended for 30 days (right hand injury)

T.J. O’Brien: Suspended indefinitely (rib and leg injuries); must pass physical prior to return

Fighters often return to action much sooner. Once doctors give them the “OK”. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
