The full medical suspensions list resulting from last weekend’s ‘UFC On FOX 4’ event has now been released and shows a number of fighters facing lengthy layoffs due to the injuries they sustained in their fights.

Amongst them is the injury-prone Jamie Varner who’s broken his hand, while Mike Swick’s triumphant return after a two year absence was slightly dampened by the news that he suffered right ankle and elbow injuries which could keep him out for up to six months.

Also facing a potential six month layoff is preliminary card fighter Oli Thompson who has a broken nose.
