WEC 38 Medical Suspensions Released

Frank Munoz at the California State Athletic Commission has released medical suspensions arising from WEC 38 held at the San Diego Sports Arena on Jan. 25.

As he previously disclosed to MMAWeekly.com, WEC lightweight Jamie Varner is suspended indefinitely until his right eye is cleared by an opthamologist. A possible fracture to his left foot has earned him an additional 180 days on the bench, unless cleared by a doctor.

Opponent Donald Cerrone is suspended for 60 days due to lacerations to his left eye lid and right check. A doctor must clear him to fight if he wants to fight before the suspension is completed.

Mike Campbell is suspended from contact for 30 days due to his TKO loss at the hands of Villefort, and may not compete for 45 days.

Rolando Perez’s TKO loss to prospect Jose Aldo has benched him for 45 days with 30 days no contact, and must clear a cut to the bridge of his nose with a doctor to avoid an additional 60 day suspension.

Edgar Garcia is wrestling with a possible fracture of his right hand in his TKO win over Hiromitsu Miura and will be suspended for 180 days unless cleared by a doctor.

Ian McCall is suspended for 180 days with a possible fracture of his right lower leg and an additional 60 days for a cut under his left eye. He will need doctor clearance for both of the injuries to fight prior to the end of the suspensions.

Blas Avena is suspended from competing for a minimum of 45 days with 30 days no contact for his KO loss to Jesse Lennox. He is also out 60 days for a scalp laceration suffered during the bout unless cleared by a doctor.

Charlie Valencia is suspended from contact and professional competition for 180 days with a possible fracture of his right hand. He will need clearance from a doctor fight before then.
