A trio of fighters face up to six months on the sidelines after the medical suspensions were handed out for this past weekend’s Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale in Las Vegas.

Given the state of his face after the fight It’s no great surprise to learn that Kyle Kingsbury suffered a left orbital fracture during his victory on the main card.

Meanwhile Chris Cope has suspected fractured thumbs and the tough as nails Danny Downes may have survived a deep kimura attempt during his fight, but it’s left him with a left shoulder injury, while his right hand may also be damaged.

All three were handed six month suspensions, though a qualified doctor can clear them earlier.
