UFC 140 Medical Suspensions: Nogueira, Ortiz Get 60-Day Suspensions

Medical suspensions have been released for UFC 140, including those given to main card fighters Lyoto Machida, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mark Hominick and Tito Ortiz.

MMajunkie.com received the list of suspensions with Nogueira, Hominick and Ortiz getting the longest suspensions at 60 days. Several other fighters also were suspended for 60 days.

Nogueira suffered a broken arm in his rematch with Frank Mir in the co-main event. During the fight, it appeared as if Mir had dislocated Nogueira's shoulder due to a vicious kimura applied early in the first round. Later news revealed his arm had been broken. UFC officials have confirmed Nogueira will not need surgery and that he may be able to return to the cage within nine months.

Ortiz took on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and was stopped in the first round due to body strikes. It appeared as if Ortiz had injured his ribs during the stoppage, which will cause him to need a chest x-ray and have an abdominal ultrasound done before his next fight.

Hominick was stopped just seven seconds into the first round, when Chan Sung-Jung knocked him out.

The main event featured former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida going up against reigning UFC champion Jon "Bones" Jones. Machida was choked unconscious in the second round after a guillotine choke was applied by Jones.
