The Medical suspensions resulting from last weekend’s UFC On FOX 7 card have now been released and show that four fighters are facing a potential six months on the sidelines due to the injuries they sustained.

It seems that hand issues were the major culprit on this occasion, with Daniel Cormier damaging his middle finger, Chad Mendes breaking his right index finger and Jorge Masvidal fracturing his right thumb.

In addition Ramsey Nijem joins them on a 180 day suspension after being sent to hospital with head trauma.
