MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently requested and today received the list of suspensions from the California State Athletic Commission, which regulated the event.
UFC on FOX 7 took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card aired live on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.
Cormier, who outpointed ex-UFC champ Frank Mir in the night’s co-feature, received a six-month term for a swollen right middle finger. He needs a doctor’s clearance to lift the suspension.
Overwhelmed by strikes for the first time in his career, Nate Diaz received a two-month term for facial lacerations and a 45-day term for a TKO loss to Josh Thomson.
Jordan Mein, who stepped in for Dan Hardy in a welterweight bout against Matt Brown, left the octagon with perhaps the most significant damage of main-card competitors. He is suspended for six months for a potential left jaw and right orbital fracture, as well as two months for a laceration to his nose and 45 days for a TKO loss.
The full list of medical suspensions for UFC on FOX 7 include:
