UFC on Fox Medical Suspensions: Yamamoto, Bradley, and Rosa out 3 Months

Cain VelasquezThe California State Athletic Commission has released its list of medical suspensions from UFC on Fox 1. The longest suspensions were given to Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto, Paul Bradley, and Aaron Rosa for suspected broken bones sustained in their respective fights.

Conspicuously absent was new UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, who reportedly fought with a torn meniscus. While this may seem odd, post-fight physicals are usually based on injuries sustained during the fight rather than pre-existing injuries for insurance purposes. Depending on the procedure done to either remove or trim the meniscus, the recovery time can typically range from a month to three months.

CSAC Medical Suspensions:

  • Cain Velasquez: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO loss
  • Clay Harvison: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO loss
  • Norifumi Yamamoto: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to possible left-finger fracture; can be cleared early by a physician
  • Darren Uyenoyama: Suspended 60 days with 60 days no contact due to left-eye laceration
  • Mackens Semerzier: Suspended 60 days with 60 days no contact due to scalp lacerations; suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for precautionary reasons
  • Paul Bradley: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to possible left-elbow fracture; can be cleared early by a physician
  • Aaron Rosa: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to a possible left-wrist fracture; can be cleared early by a physician
