UFC 153 medical suspension: possible injuries abound

Esther Lin of MMA Fighting

The UFC 153 medical suspensions were released today by...well, the UFC. There was no athletic commission in Brazil, so it was all done based on regular procedures from American commissions, presumably by Keith Kizer. Anyway, a lot of fighters sustained possible injuries on the card and were handed potential 180-day suspensions. Five guys, including both Fabio Maldonado and Glover Teixeira look to be out for a while - Maldonado needs neurological clearance, and Teixeira will need clearance on possible hand and elbow injuries. Chris Camozzi, Luiz Cane, and Sergio Moraes are all also likely nursing injuries right now. Check the whole list below (via The UG):

Reza Madadi: 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact.

Cristiano Marcello: 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact.

Chris Camozzi: 180 days or negative x-ray of nasal bone. Minimum suspension of 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact.
