All 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.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today obtained the list of medical suspensions from Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux (Quebec’s athletic commission). Disclosed paydays/salaries for the event won’t be released.
Only Nate Marquardt, who suffered a knockout loss to fellow welterweight Jake Ellenberger on the main card, received a suspension of more than 45 days. He’s been issued a mandatory rest period of 60 days.
The commission also issued 45-day layoffs to preliminary-card fighters Daron Cruickshank, Issei Tamura and Reuben Duran. All of the fighters suffered losses.
