Jon Jones Picks Up 180 Days On UFC 135 Medical Suspension List

via ufc.com

The official medical suspensions are out for UFC 135 and in a bit of a surprising moment, Jon Jones has picked up one of the longest medical suspensions of any fighter on the card. Jones has been suspended for six months unless cleared by a doctor, in which case the suspension can be reduced to 45 days. There were no details on the exact injuries tied to the suspensions, but one would have to assume this is related to Jones' limp after his fight with Quinton Jackson and then basically being carried to the press conference.

Full suspension list via MMA Weekly:

Jon Jones - suspended 180 days or 45 days with physician's clearance
Quinton Jackson - suspended 60 days, no contact 45 days
Matt Hughes - suspended 45 days, no contact 30 days
Mark Hunt - suspended 45 days, no contact 30 days
Ben Rothwell - suspended 60 days, no contact 45 days
Takanori Gomi - suspended 30 days
Aaron Riley - suspended 180 days, 90 days with physician's clearance
Nick Ring - suspended 30 days
Eddie Yagin - suspended 30 days
Cole Escovedo - suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Ricardo Romero - suspended 60 days, 45 days no contact
James Te Huna - suspended 180 days for injuries or 30 day suspension with physician's clearance.

Riley was forced to quit after one round of his fight with Tony Ferguson, believing to have re-broken his jaw.
