UFC on FX 4 Medical Suspensions: Stout, Catone, Gambino Out Indefinitely



Seven fighters received medical suspensions from the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board following last night's UFC on FX 4, including headliner Gray Maynard.

“The Bully” must sit out 45 days due to a facial laceration caused by his opponent, Clay Guida, who did not receive a suspension. UFC on FX 4 took place at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., and saw Maynard edge Guida via split decision in the main event.

Co-headliner Sam Stout was handed an indefinite suspension by the NJSACB, as were undercard competitors Nick Catone and Joey Gambino. All three men may be cleared early by a physician but must spend at least 45, 60 and 90 days on the shelf, respectively.

Rounding out the announced suspensions, Spencer Fisher and Ross Pearson will be inactive for at least 45 days due to facial lacerations, while Luis Ramos has been barred from competing for at least 30 days for the same reason.
