UFC 162 Medical Suspensions

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released the medical suspensions for this past Saturday’s UFC 162 fight card. Receiving the longest suspension from Saturday’s action was preliminary fighter Kazuki Tokudome, who faces a long layoff due to what is know as a blowout fracture of his right orbital bone. Tokudome will likely be out at least six months unless cleared by an ENT doctor ahead of schedule.

Interestingly enough, for such a hard-hitting night of fights that was the only long-term layoff doled out by the commission. Main event fighter Anderson Silva received a precautionary suspension for knockout loss to newly crowned middleweight champion Chris Weidman but was already expected to take an extended leave of absence anyways.

Complete UFC 162 Medical Suspensions:

  • Kazuki Tokudome: Must have right orbital blowout fracture cleared by ear, nose and throat doctor or ophthalmologist or suspended until Jan. 3; minimum suspension until Aug. 21 with no contact in training until Aug. 6
