The medical suspensions resulting from UFC 130 have now been released and show a number of fighters could be forced out of action for up to six months due to injuries sustained in their fights at Saturday’s show.

Amongst those currently suspended until November 25th are Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson with a suspected fractured left hand, Frank Mir with potentially broken ribs, Brian Stann with a broken thumb and Michael McDonald with a shoulder problem.

All four fighters can be cleared earlier by a qualified doctor however, and the UFC will certainly be hoping that’s the case as that’s a significant amount of big-name talent that could potentially be sidelined otherwise.

See the full list of medical suspensions below.

  • Quinton “Rampage” Jackson: Must have have left hand X-rayed, and if injured, suspended until Nov. 25, though he can be cleared by an orthopedic doctor; regardless, suspended with no contact during training until June 28
