Following the UFC on Versus 2 show last weekend in San Diego, the California State Athletic Commission has released the medical suspensions that include main event fighter Vladimir Matyushenko, Mark Munoz, and John Howard.

Howard, who ended up with a baseball sized lump under his left eye, during his fight with Jake Ellenberger was suspended for 180 days with no contact during that time due to the possible facial fracture. Howard will have to be cleared by a physician if he returns before that time.

Main event fighter Vladimir Matyushenko is suspended for 45 days with no contact for 30 days until he completes a new physical.

Mark Munzo also faces a 45 day suspension with no contact for 30 days because of a sprain on his right elbow.

Following a knockout loss to Takanori Gomi, Tyson Griffin faces the same 45 day suspension with no contact for 30 days until he receives a new physical.

Jacob Volkmann, despite a victory, will be suspended for 30 days with no contact for 21 days for a possible loose upper incisor.

DeMarques Johnson could face a 180 day suspension with no contact for 180 days due to a possible right orbital fracture, unless cleared by a physician. He also has a 45 day suspension with 30 days no contact until he completes a new physical.

Igor Pokrajac picked up his first win in the UFC on Sunday, but will have a 60 day suspension, with 60 days of no contact because of a cut on the right side of his scalp. Opponent James Irvin also gets a 60 days suspension with 60 days of no contact due to a cut over his left eye, and a 45 day suspension with 30 days of no contact due to a hard fight.

Mike Massenzio ended up with a 45 day suspension with 30 days of no contact for his hard fight against Brian Stann.
