Four fighters were handed indefinite medical suspensions by the Ohio Athletic Commission following Saturday's Strikeforce Tate vs. Rousey card. Former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate obviously leads the list after her left elbow was mangled by new champ Ronda Rousey. In addition to that, three fighters have suspected broken hands - Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (Kid Nate posted about that earlier), Conor Heun, and Roger Bowling. All four can have their suspensions lifted in cleared by doctors. Here are the other fighters that received suspensions from the commission:
Kazuo Misaki: Suspended 45 days to due a facial laceration
Alexis Davis: Suspended 30 days to due a facial laceration
Pat Healy: Suspended 30 days to due a head laceration
Brandon Saling: Suspended 30 days for precautionary reasons
Every other fighter on the card was given a seven day suspension, which is standard practice by the Ohio Athletic Commission.
