UFC 134 Rio Medical Suspensions: Forrest Griffin Leads The Way With Potential 180-Day Suspension


Forrest Griffin

The lack of a commission in Brazil doesn’t stop the UFC from following the same rules when they oversee and event, and thus they have handed down medical suspensions from the card last weekend.

Leading the suspension list is former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin who faces a possible 180 day suspension unless cleared by a doctor with an x-ray of his right foot, and jaw.

Also at the top of the list are Stanislav Nedkov, who has a similar 180 day suspension due to a potential broken nose, as well as Ian Loveland, who has to provide a negative chest x-ray or he could face a 180 day suspension as well.

The full list of suspensions are listed below courtesy of MixedMartialArts.com as confirmed by UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner.
