It wasn't an easy night for the warriors of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Following the UFC on Fox 3 bouts at the IZOD Center of East Rutherford, New Jersey, 14 fighters including both Welterweights from the Johny Hendricks vs. Josh Koscheck co-main event have been suspended by the New Jersey State Athletic Review Board pending further medical review.

Both Hendricks and Koscheck came away with smarting eyes. Hendricks' right eye will require a visit to a medical specialist following being poked in the eye by Koscheck. Koscheck will need a CT scan of his right eye, no small matter following his shattered right orbital bone against champ Georges St. Pierre at UFC 124 in December, 2010.

Other main card winners Alan Belcher and Lavar Johnson both will require x-rays of their hands following the beatings they dished out to Rousimar Palhares and Pat Barry respectively.
