UFC 158 medical suspensions: No major layoffs issued to fighters


nate-marquardt-23.jpgAll the fighters from this past weekend’s UFC 158 event avoided lengthy medical suspensions following the show.

The event took place this past Saturday, March 16, at Montreal’s Bell Centre, and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre scored a decision victory over Nick Diaz in the pay-per-view headliner.
