UFC 145 Medical Suspensions; Miguel Torres Out for Two Months

UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans is now in the books, with Jonny “Bones” Jones having retained his title with a unanimous decision win over Rashad Evans.

The title fight may not have lived up to the hype, but there were plenty of other fights on the card that delivered and, now, there are medical suspensions to prove it. MMAJunkie has released the full list of medical suspensions that were handed down by the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission.

Miguel Torres is out for 60 days to recover from the first-round starching he suffered at the hands of Michael McDonald. The 31-year-old former champ, who needed help making it back to the locker room following the loss, must also undergo a CT scan to be cleared.

Mac Danzig was suspended indefinitely following his unanimous decision win over Efrain Escudero. He can be cleared after having his right ankle – which Escudero badly torqued – X-rayed.

Che Mills and Brendan Schaub are suspended for 45 days. Mills was TKOed by rising welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald in the second round of their tilt, while Schaub was knocked out cold by Ben Rothwell in their heavyweight scrap’s opening moments.

Chad Griggs, Eddie Yagin and Mark Hominick are next in line with 30-day suspensions, couple with 21 days without contact. Yagin surprisingly defeated Hominick in a three-round battle, taking home a split decision win over The Machine. Griggs was tapped out by Travis Browne in one round.

Matt Brown, Stephen Thompson and Keith Wisniewski were all three hit with 14-day suspensions. Brown slowed Thompson’s momentum by defeating the karateka via unanimous decision over a grueling three-rounder. Wisniewski was defeated by Chris Clements via split decision.

All of the remaining fighters who competed on the card were suspended for 7 days.

UFC 145 went down at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
