UFC on Fuel TV Medical Suspensions: Munoz and Te Huna Face 6-Month Suspensions
Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

It appears that the loss Mark Munoz suffered at the hands of Chris Weidman at UFC on Fuel TV 4 may cost him more than a shot at the UFC middleweight title. If the medical suspension reports coming from the fight card are accurate, it may also cost him a significant amount of time on the shelf.

Also receiving a lengthy suspension, pending the outcome of an MRI/physician release, was James Te Huna. Te Huna received his injuries in a winning effort, defeating Joey Beltran via unanimous decision after landing a total of 172 strikes during their three-round battle.

Munoz and Te Huna had the lengthiest possible suspensions, but they were not alone as five other fighters saw their names listed by the California State Athletic Commission (via MMAJunkie.com)
