UFC 167 medical suspensions: Johny Hendricks out 6 months, Georges St-Pierre out for 45 days

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

The injury suspensions are out for the most recent UFC event. Despite many thinking Hendricks deserved the decision, he could be on the shelf longer than the champ.

Saturday night, Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre successfully defended his title against Johny Hendricks. The official decision has been wildly ridiculed by fans, media, and UFC president Dana White alike. All three judges agreed on rounds 2-5, giving Hendricks rounds two and four and GSP rounds three and five. Two of the judges scored round 1 for the champ while only one did for the contender.

Regardless of the judging controversy, it was a back and forth battle that left both men feeling the effects. St-Pierre face showed a ton of cuts and bruises at the post fight presser and Hendricks tweeted out a picture of his damaged hand the following day. According to a release sent out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, GSP's superficial facial wounds will only keep him out for a month and a half while Hendricks could be down for 6 months for a knee injury.
