Strikeforce: Diaz Vs Daley – Medical Suspensions List

The medical suspensions resulting from this past weekend’s Strikeforce: Diaz Vs Daley event have now been released, and show that the main card stars managed to escape without any long-term injuries.

Despite winning his action-packed bout with Paul Daley in the main event of the evening, Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz actually finds himself being slapped with a longer suspension than his opponent due to an eye laceration.

That leaves him on the sidelines for 60 days, while Daley is suspended for 45 days after being TKO’d by the champ.

Despite looking like he’d been hit by a truck after his majority draw with Gegard Mousasi, former UFC star Keith Jardine was also handed just 60 days out, while Mousasi avoided a suspension altogether.
