UFC 92 medical suspensions

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official medical suspensions from UFC 92, which is a necessity after MMA events usually for precautionary reasons.

Forrest Griffin has what seems to be a broken left hand, which he said in a post-fight interview he injured in round one. He has a minimum suspension until February 12, but can be cleared early with a negative x-ray.

Wanderlei Silva, who many were concerned about after receiving a devastating knockout from Quinton Jackson has been suspended until Feb. 27 with no contact until Feb. 12.

Joe Rogan during UFC 92 commentary, made the statement that once you get knocked out, it becomes easier for it to happen again the more times it occurs. If one looks at the history of fighters who have received KO’s during their MMA career, the evidence does seem to validate the statement made by Rogan.

Safety is always of the utmost importance and these fighters are laying their health, careers, and even lives on the line every time they step in the cage. We wish all the fighters from UFC 92 a speedy recovery. Here are the official medical suspensions:
