The suspensions list from UFC 143 is now in and shows that several fighters are facing lengthy lay-offs after their encounters at the Las Vegas show.

They incude Fabricio Werdum who could be out for up to six months due to a contusion on his right quadricep, while Roy Nelson is out for a couple of months due to the nasty head gash he suffered in that same fight.

Others who could be out for half of the year are Clifford Starks, Ed Herman, Matt Riddle and Henry Martinez, who’ll be joined by Edwin Figueroa who suffered a groin injury after being kicked illegally in the family jewels twice by Alex Caceres.
