The Colorado Division of Professions and Occupations' Office of Boxing (holy long title) released their list of medical suspensions from UFC 150, and there's a major one at the very top - UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson. Bendo, who is scheduled to face Nate Diaz for the title on December 8th at UFC on Fox 5, was suspended indefinitely by the commission and needs clearance from a doctor before he'll be free to train again. The injury sustained wasn't noted in the report. If the UFC has already booked him again though, they're probably pretty confident that he'll be ready to go.

Anyway, here is the full list of suspended fighters:

Ben Henderson – Must be cleared by a physician
Melvin Guillard – 60 Days
Buddy Roberts – 30 Days
Justin Lawrence – 60 Days + physician clearance
Jared Hamman – 60 Days
Ken Stone – 30 Days
Dustin Pague – 45 Days
Eiji Mitsuoka – 45 Days
