Stab wound tops list of Bellator 170 injuries and medical suspensions

Bellator 170: “Ortiz vs. Sonnen” went down inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., last Saturday night (Jan. 21, 2017). The headlining fight for that card was a battle between two former UFC fighters with an old score from college to settle in “Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz and “Bad Guy” Chael Sonnen.

Medical suspensions from California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) for “Ortiz vs. Sonnen” are in and a quick main event (recap here) means that both Ortiz and Sonnen were ordered to take the next week off.

Paul Daley, Ralek Gracie, Emmanuel Sanchez, Jalin Turner, Curtis Millender, Mike Segura, Jacob Rosales, Colleen Schneider, Henry Corrales, Guilherme Bomba, Kevin Casey, Keith Berry, Alex Soto, Demarcus Brown, James Barnes and Daniel Rodriguez also received the seven-day mandatory minimum rest.

After that it gets more interesting.

Given that Brennan Ward left The Forum on a stretcher there’s an “indefinite” next to his medical suspension. He has a long list of restrictions to boot including (but not limited to) clearance by a neurologist with a CT scan and 60 days no contact unless cleared by physician due to a laceration to his left eye.

Only one other fighter got an indefinite suspension and that was Christian Gonzalez, who not only got knocked out in the second round of a preliminary bout but failed to report a stab wound to the commission before his fight.

Here are the others:

* Derek Anderson: Suspended 180 days no contest, 180 days no contact unless cleared by dentist for front tooth; minimum of 7-day mandatory rest
* Jamar Ocampo: Suspended 180 days no contest, 180 days no contact unless cleared by physician for jaw/left rib pain; minimum suspension of 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact with no exceptions due to TKO
