The Ontario Athletic Commission on Tuesday released the list of UFC 152 medical suspensions.
The list includes every fighter on the card, although several are standard 14-day rest periods just for having a fight.
Of particular note on the list, however, is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. He received an indefinite medical suspension due to having his arm hyperextended by Vitor Belfort’s armbar attempt and must get it x-rayed and cleared before he can return to action.
