The medical suspensions list has been released for Saturday night’s UFC 179 event and shows that Phil Davis has been handed a six month medical suspension due to a suspected fractured right hand, sustained during his decision win over Glover Teixeira.

Also facing up to half a year on the sidelines is Scott Jorgensen who has suspected broken ribs after a particularly vicious kick courtesy of Wilson Reis who would go on to finish him by submission shortly afterwards.
