The medical suspensions following Saturday night’s UFC 132 event have now been released and shows that a number of fighters require time out following their bouts.

Amongst them are headliners Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber who each have a suspected broken right hand, though an x-ray will be required to establish if this is indeed the case.  Both men have been troubled by hand injuries in the past so this is familiar territory for them.  Brian Bowles also had a suspected broken hand, but an x-ray has now established that is not the case.

Meanwhile both Dong Hyun Kim and Shane Roller have a suspected right orbital fracture which may also force them into a lengthy six month suspension unless cleared by a doctor earlier.

Strangest injury of the night goes to Anthony Njokuani who suffered a chipped tooth during his victory over Andre Winner, but it’s a contusion on his left leg that’s his most significant injury and could keep him out of action until December 30th.
