UFC on Fuel TV 6: Medical Suspensions and Injuries
The UFC has made public its list of medical suspensions and injuries from the UFC on Fuel TV 6 event in Macao. As expected, Rich Franklin has been told to stay away from a cage for six months following his knockout at the hands of Cung Le (h/t MMA Mania).
However, it wasn’t a concussion that has put him out for this unusually long time, but a thumb he broke during the one-round contest.
His opponent, Cung Le, has also been told to sit on the sidelines for 30 days, as has Takanori Gomi, Stanislav Nedkov and Paulo Thiago—all for "precautionary" reasons.
Other precautionary suspensions include Tom DeBlass, who lost to middleweight Riki Fukuda, Motonobu Tezuka, who lost to Alex Caceres, and Jeff Hougland, who lost to Takeya Mizugaki.
Note: Fighters on precautionary suspensions often return to action much sooner than initially anticipated pending a green light from a doctor.
Those with much more serious suspensions are Jon Tuck, who is out indefinitely until he fixes his right shoulder, and Zhang Tiequan, also out indefinitely pending ENT clearance of a nasal fracture. Both have a minimum 30-day suspension with 21 days of no contact.
There are also two men on 180-day suspensions: Mark Danzing, who lost to Gomi and needs to heal his thumb, and Thiago Silva, who beat Nedkov but injured his right hand in the process.
The event, which took place last Saturday, was the UFC’s first foray into China and drew a $1,300,000 gate.
