On Wednesday afternoon, the UFC released the list of medical suspensions from UFC on FX 7. Suspensions were handed down to 10 fighters by the Comissa Atletica Brasileira de MMA, a new regulatory body that will handle these affairs for Brazilian events.

The list of suspended fighters (via MMAweekly.com) includes headliner Michael Bisping and co-main event fighter Daniel Sarafian.

Suspensions of 180 days were handed to preliminary fighters Diego Nunes, Wagner Prado and C.J. Keith, although each fighter has the ability to be cleared sooner by a physician.

The full list of suspensions is as follows:

Michael Bisping: Suspended 60 days with no contact for 45 days

Daniel Sarafian: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days

Ben Rothwell: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days

Thiago Tavares: Suspended 60 days with no contact for 45 days

Milton Vieira: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days

Diego Nunes: Suspended 180 days unless cleared by a Maxillofacial Surgeon; he is also suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days

Lucas Martins: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days

Pedro Nobre: Suspended 60 days with no contact for 45 days

Wagner Prado: Suspended 180 days unless his left knee is cleared by physician following MRI; he is also suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days.

C.J. Keith: Suspended 180 days unless his right knee is cleared by a physician following an MRI.

 

It is interesting to note that not a single winner from the event was given any sort of suspension.

Preliminary card fighter Andrew Craig is the only loser from the evening who did not receive any sort of suspension. Craig went three full rounds against Ronny Markes and came up short on the judges scorecards.

UFC on FX 7 took place on January 19 at the Ibierapuera Arena in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
