The medical suspensions list has now been released for UFC 153 and shows a number of fighters facing lengthy spells on the treatment table after injuries they sustained during their fights.

Perhaps unsurprisingly a particularly brutal fight between Glover Teixeira and Fabio Maldonado ended up with both fighters being handed a 180 day suspension.

Despite his convincing victory Teixeira is suspected of having damaged both his right hand and elbow, and so faces 6 months out unless an x-ray shows differently.

Meanwhile, his opponent Maldonado’s vicious beatdown requires him to have a neurological exam and potentially take six months out.

Also facing a six month lay-off is prelim fighter Sergio Moraes who has a damaged right knee that will require him to undergo an MRI, while Chris Camozzi is suspected of having fractured his nose.
