The Ohio Athletic Commission has issued medical suspensions to just four fighters who competed at UFC 82.

The 10-fight event took place this past Saturday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Anderson Silva defended his UFC middleweight title with a second-round submission of Dan Henderson, and Heath Herring earned a close split-decision victory over Cheick Kongo in a key heavyweight bout.

All four fighter suspensions were for precautionary reasons; each fighter was on the receiving end of a knockout or TKO.

The short list, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) received from the OAC, includes:


  • Alessio Sakara (TKO to Chris Leben): 30-day suspension for precautionary reasons
  • Evan Tanner (KO to Yushin Okami): 60-day suspension for precautionary reasons
  • Jake O’Brien (TKO to Andrei Arlovski): 30-day suspension for precautionary reasons
  • Dustin Hazelett (TKO to Josh Koscheck): 30-day suspension for precautionary reasons

All four fighters were able to leave the octagon under their own power.

Despite 20 fighters competing on the card, UFC 82 featured no reported lacerations, fractured or broken bones, or other fairly serious (but common) injuries. However, in a post-UFC 82 press conference, UFC president Dana White said Yushin Okami had suffered a broken hand and that Koscheck might have, too.
