The Oklahoma Athletic Commission threw around several 180 day suspensions following UFC Fight Night 112.

The Oklahoma State Athletic Commission has released their post-event list of medical suspensions, and several fighters may have lengthy breaks before their next fight due to injuries sustained in the Octagon. As always, medical suspensions can often be lifted early if a fighter is cleared by another doctor, and it seems like Oklahoma slapped 180 day suspensions on a lot of fighters for minor issues.

Here’s the list (care of MMA Junkie):

Michael Chiesa: suspended 180 days due to a possible left-shoulder injury, though a doctor can clear him early; regardless, 30 days with no contact for 21 days due to a scalp laceration.

Tim Boetsch: suspended 180 days due to possible right-foot and shin injuries, though a doctor can clear him early.
