Newly crowned WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown topped the list of seven WEC 36 fighters who were issued medical suspensions by the Florida State Boxing Commission as a result of Wednesday’s event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Brown, who upset title-holder Urijah Faber via first-round TKO in the WEC 36 main event, has been suspended indefinitely after suffering torn cartilage between his ribs during the bout. Brown, who had to be helped out of the octagon as a result of the injury, is expected to be out of action for 4-6 weeks and will require a doctor’s clearance before being cleared to fight.
Faber, Jens Pulver, Nissen Osterneck, Jonathan Brookins, and Rafael Dias all received 30 day precautionary suspensions from the commission as a result of their technical knockout losses.
David Avellan, who was knocked out in just 18-seconds by Aaron Simpson, has been suspended for 60 days for precautionary reasons.
