The UFC 132 medical suspensions were sent out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission today, and the list of long suspensions is plentiful. A total of six fighters, including both main event fighters, are suspended until December 30th unless they are cleared by a specialist. Here is the list of major suspensions:

Dominick Cruz must have right hand x-rayed; if positive then must be cleared by Orthopedic Dr. or no contest until 12/30/11

Urijah Faber must have right hand/wrist, right shoulder and chest x-rayed if positive then must be cleared by Orthopedic Dr. or no contest until 12/30/11; minimum suspension no contest until 08/17/11, no contact until 08/02/11

Anthony Njokuani must have contusion on left lower leg cleared by Dr or no contest until 12/30/11 – also chipped right lower tooth

One good thing did come out today in regards to Brian Bowles though. It was feared that he had a broken hand, but he turned to twitter today to announce that he was good to go, so his suspension will be lifted quickly:
