Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation had a chance to review the recent carnage at UFC on FOX 19, which took place last Saturday night (April 16, 2016) inside Tampa’s Amalie Arena on FOX Sports 1.
As expected, Rashad Evans will spend some time on the sidelines after getting torched by Glover Teixeira in the light heavyweight main event (replay). In addition, Raquel Pennington and Darrell Horcher, among others, were given mandatory vacations in the wake of their battles in the “Sunshine State.”
The complete list of UFC on FOX 19 medical suspensions (via MMA Fighting) below.
Oluwale Bamgbose: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact). Additional suspension 180 days pending CT scan results.
Darrell Horcher: Suspended 60 days for hard fight.
Omari Akhmedov: Suspended 45 days for eye laceration.
Rashad Evans: Suspended 30 days.
Raquel Pennington: Suspended 30 days for right eye laceration.
Court McGee: Suspended 30 days.
Randy Brown: Suspended 30 days (21 days no contact).
Manny Gamburyan: Suspended 30 days.
Michael Graves: Suspension pending left hand x-ray.
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.
