The Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA) has released the medical suspensions for this past Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 29 fight card. The CABMMA handed out 14-day suspensions to all fighters, with 13 fighters receiving longer suspensions. Unsurprisingly, the longest suspension on the card was a six-month layoff to Mike Pierce after his brutal submission loss.

UFC Fight Night 29 was headlined by a five round battle between Demian Maia and Jake Shields that saw the American prove victorious. Unfortunately, the event has proven more memorable due to the aforementioned injury of Pierce at the hands of Rousimar Palhares.

As always is the case, fighters can be out much longer or cleared earlier depending on clearance from a doctor.
