‘TUF: Live Finale’ Medical Suspensions; Chiesa and Schilling Out Longest

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the medical suspension information from last Friday night’s The Ultimate Fighter: Live Finale fight card.

Winner of this season Michael Chiesa and Pat Schilling were both hit with six month suspensions for possible injuries (potentially putting them out until November 29), but can be cleared early by a physician pending the results of X-rays.

Main event fighters Martin Kampmann and Jake Ellenberger received two month and one month suspensions, respectively. Kampmann rallied from early trouble to TKO Ellenberger in the second round, though he suffered multiple facial lacerations in the process. Ellenberger is only suspended for precautionary reasons.
