The UFC 207 injuries and medical suspensions for those athletes competing at the “Nunes vs. Rousey” pay-per-view (PPV) event last Friday night (Dec. 30, 2016) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, were released on Tuesday by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. “Rowdy” was truck’d my current division queenpin Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds (replay) and will now spend the next 45 days licking her wounds.

Not that anyone expected her back before then.

Joining her on the injured reserves is former 135-pound titleholder Dominick Cruz. “Dominator” was cut open during his five-round unanimous decision loss to Cody Garbrandt (video) and as a result, has some serious stitching up do do.

That’s not all.

Full list of UFC 207 medical suspensions include:

  • John Lineker: Must have broken jaw cleared by ENT or Oral Maxillary Facial Surgeon or no contest until 06/29; minimum suspension of no contest until 01/30, no contact until 01/21
  • Ray Borg: Must have left ankle x-rayed, if positive then must have clearance by an orthopedic doctor or no contest until 06/29; minimum suspension of no contest until 01/30, no contact until 01/21
  • Niko Price: Must have right great toe x-rayed, if positive then must be cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 06/29; minimum suspension of no contest until 01/30, no contact until 01/21
  • Alex Oliveira: Must have broken nose cleared by an ENT doctor or no contest until 06/29; minimum suspension of no contest until 03/01, no contact until 02/14
  • Mike Pyle: Suspended until 03/01, no contact until 02/14
  • Ronda Rousey: Suspended until 02/14, no contact until 01/30
  • Dominick Cruz: Suspended until 02/14, no contact until 01/30 due to left eyebrow laceration
  • Louis Smolka: Suspended until 02/14, no contest until 01/30 due to lacerations near both eyes
  • Johny Hendricks: Suspended until 02/14, no contact until 01/30 due to right scalp laceration
  • Cody Garbrandt: Suspended until 01/30, no contact until 01/21
  • Marvin Vettori: Suspended until 01/21, no contact until 01/14

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
