Strikeforce’s Grand-Prix final event on Saturday night took it’s toll on it’s participants with a number of fighters now facing the possibility of up to six months sitting on the sidelines due to the injuries they sustained.

As we reported at the weekend, both heavyweight GP finalists Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett fractured their hands in the first round of their fight which sees them medically suspended for six months, though a doctor can clear them earlier.

The injury prone Josh Thomson came off even worse however – he’s dealing with both a left knee and right hand fracture.

Others facing 180 days include JZ Cavalcante (left shoulder ligament damage), Yuri Villefort (right knee) and Bobby Green (broken finger).
