The release of the UFC 131 medical suspensions report today shows that all 22 fighters on the card picked up some form of injury in their respective fights in Vancouver, Canada.

The good news however is that not too many fighters will be out long-term.  Worst off on the night was Jason Young’s who’s entertaining scrap with Dustin Poirier left him with a suspecteed broken foot which left him with a 180 day suspension.

Meanwhile main event star Shane Carwin has to sit out 60 days after breaking his nose and sufering multiple cuts to the face after his three round beatdown at the hands of Junior Dos Santos who escaped with just a 9 day manditory suspension.
