Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 163 was a rough card for the combatants, with six fighters receiving long-term medical suspensions.

Last Saturday's event in Brazil produced a lot of injuries. The Brazilian MMA Commission, CABMMA, released the list of medical suspensions from UFC 163, and it's lengthy. Six fighters received suspensions of 90 days or more, and most of them need doctor's clearance to return to training.
