UFC 130 Medical Suspensions: Jackson, Mir, Stann Among Possible Long Layoffs

LAS VEGAS – Seven fighters from Saturday's UFC 130 card were given medical suspensions following their fights. The Nevada State Athletic Commission released the list of suspensions to MMA Fighting on Tuesday.

The lengthiest potential suspensions went to main event and co-main event winners Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Frank Mir. Each could be out for six months unless given early clearance by doctors.

Jackson will need an x-ray on his left hand, which he said following the fight was fractured going into his bout with Matt Hamill. Failing that clearance, Jackson could be out until the end of November. Mir is in the same situation after his unanimous decision win over Roy Nelson. He'll need a doctor to sign off on his left ribs in order for him to return, or he'll be out until Nov. 25, as well.

Also getting potential six month suspensions were Fight of the Night winners Brian Stann and Jorge Santiago, plus Michael McDonald. Stann has a broken right thumb after his win over Santiago, who has a fractured left orbital.

The full list of medical suspensions is below.

Quinton Jackson: Suspended until June 28 with no contact until June 19. Needs x-ray on left hand. If positive, must be cleared by an orthopedic doctor, or no contest until Nov. 25.
