    I wonder why? Do they usually suspend guys for 60 days just for getting beat up a bit, or does he have a some type of medical issue which needs to be addressed? Can’t wait to see him fight again, but it wouldn’t have been in the next two months anyway, so no big deal.

    One of the best fights I’ve seen in a while.

    Also, wouldn’t have been at all surprised to learn Stephens has a fractured orbital. That eye looked really bad.

    Slightly off topic, but I’m sure poirier had an iron cross tattoo on his thigh. Looks like some fascist insignia. Reminds me of that Saling dude.
