Kyle Kingsbury

Kyle Kingsbury

Tony Ferguson took home the Season 13 “Ultimate Fighter” crown on Saturday night with a win over Ramsey Nijem, while Clay Guida put his name in the hat for a shot at the UFC lightweight title by defeating former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. Both also emerged unscathed, staying off the list of medical suspensions that the Nevada State Athletic Commission release on Monday.

Several other fighters on the TUF 13 Finale fight card at The Pearl Casino Resort on Saturday night weren’t so lucky. Three fighters received what could end up being six-month suspensions.

Kyle Kingsbury, Chris Cope, and Danny Downes are the three on that last that are suspended until Dec. 2, 2011. Kingsbury must get a possible left orbital fracture cleared, while Downes must get his right hand x-rayed and have both his right hand and left shoulder cleared; both fighters, even with clearance, are required to forego any contact prior to July 5 and cannot fight prior to July 20.

Cope has to have both thumbs x-rayed. If positive, he must then get cleared by an orthopedic doctor before he can fight. He faces no minimum suspension.

“Ultimate Fighter” runner-up Ramsey Nijem, who was knocked out by Ferguson, is suspended until July 20 with no contact prior to July 5.

Tim Credeur, also suffered a knockout loss, and is suspended until July 5 with no contact before June 26.

Fabio Maldonado suffered a laceration on his right upper eyelid and is suspended until July 5.

Shamar Bailey, for a right cheek laceration, and Justin Edwards, for a tough fight, were both also suspended until July 5 with no contact prior to June 26.

Josh Grispi was suspended until June 26 with no contact prior to June 19 due to the body shots he took in his fight with George Roop.

Ken Stone was suspended until Aug. 4 with no contact prior to July 20 following a knockout loss to Scott Jorgensen.
