UFC 140 Medical Suspensions: Nogueira, Ortiz, Hominick Sidelined 60 Days

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tito Ortiz, and Mark Hominick each received 60 day medical suspensions following their losses this past Saturday at UFC 140. The Ontario athletic commission confirmed the UFC 140 medical suspensions with MMAjunkie.

Nogueira won’t require surgery for a broken arm suffered in a first-round submission to Frank Mir and should be able to return to the Octagon in “no more than 9 months,” the UFC announced today.

60 day suspensions also went to Krzysztof Soszynski, Jared Hamman, Rich Attonito, and Mitch Clarke for knockout losses, while headliner Lyoto Machida was suspended 30 days for a cut on his forehead that preceded a second-round submission loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The rest of the card received mandatory 14 day suspensions for precautionary reasons.
