UFC on Fuel 6 medical suspensions: Le, Franklin, Silva among four fighters out for up to 180 days

Plenty of medical suspensions were handed out following UFC on Fuel 6 in Macau, China. With no athletic commission around, the UFC took charge of overseeing this card. The headlining suspensions are of the two men who fought in the main event, Cung Le and Rich Franklin. Le needs his right elbow cleared by doctors with x-rays pending, so for the time being he's possibly gone for 6 months. Franklin needs his left thumb cleared or else he'll face the same 6 month suspension. Otherwise, if both men are cleared, Le and Franklin will be suspended 30 and 45 days respectively.

There are two indefinite suspensions and they belong to Jon Tuck and Tiequan Zhang. Tuck, who defeated Zhang by decision, needs an MRI on his right shoulder, and Zhang needs a nasal fracture clearance.

Here's the full list from the main card, preliminary card, and the ones who were not on the suspension report.
