UFC on FX 5 medical suspensions

|

The Minnesota Office of Combative Sports released the medical suspensions for the fighters who took part in last Friday’s UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Silva event.

Announced earlier this week was that Travis Browne suffered a serious leg injury which would set him back 2-4 months, however the medical suspension for “Hapa” is only 30 days.

Michael Johnson came from behind and KO’d Danny Castillo in the second round of their fight. Castillo has been suspended indefinitely as he will require a neurological exam before resuming training.

Below is the full list of medical suspension thanks to MMA Weekly.

Travis Browne: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
Jay Hieron: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for laceration
Jussier da Silva: Suspended 30 days (14 days no contact) for precautionary reasons
