MMA: UFC Fight Night-Jouban vs Perry Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on FOX 22 had a lot of fun back and forth battles. Even though there weren’t many finishes, fighters like Alan Jouban, Mike Perry, Josh Emmett, Scott Holtzman, Leslie Smith, and Irene Aldana all showed up looking to scrap. And with a lot of long, grueling, tough fights comes a lot of potential injures.

The California Athletic Commission has released their post-fight medical suspensions, and as many as 8 fighters could be out for 180 days, 7 from possible fractures. For Jouban it’s his knee, for Perry and Moontasri it’s the nose, for Covington and Aldana it’s the eye. Throw in a potential broken rib for Josh Emmett and right and left hand injuries for Cole Miller and you could just about build a whole skeleton out of UFC on FOX 22 maladies. Here’s the complete list:
