    why indefinitely? jesus christ you guys are like the mens health of mma news. You post 1/4 of meaningful information and call it news.

    • Timothy Malone

      Different athletic commissions release different amounts of information. Obviously this was as much information as MMAWeekly was given.

      • Cereal Killer

        If that’s the case, it’s still bad journalism to post an incomplete article and not explain the circumstances. If I were to do the same kind of work at my job (dude, pizza’s here) Later!

  • Cereal Killer

    Guy writing article – Ok, everybody got at least a 14 day suspension… some are suspended indefinitely because… (Dude, pizza’s here!) post.

    Hmmm… pizza…

  • Chicago

    this was an in depth report the same way the J. Fitch fight was an early stoppage. KABOOM!

  • Darin

    You KNOW people are clicking on this article wondering why Evans has an indefinite suspension, so if you aren’t going to (or are unable to) tell us, you need to at least state that that the reason for the indefinite suspension is unavailable. Don’t just ignore the subject entirely.

    Also, is it such a pain to update your stock photos of fighters that you only do it every 2 or 3 years?

      Because Rashad’s appearance has changed so much in the last three years……..wasn’t even sure if that was him ! lol

  • jewball lagouine

    Wild guess… They’re wounded so they need a medical autorisation before they can fight (and put their bodies at risk) again.

    • George Sperry


      • Christopher Hardin

        medical authorization

  • Cptmats

    Once again Nelson spends more time on a medical suspension than He does training for the fight !
