The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released its list of medical suspensions resulting from action on the December 5th, 2009 Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Finale.
According to an email sent to FiveOuncesofPain.com by NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer, a total of nine UFC fighters will be forcibly sitting on the sidelines for at least some period of time.
As expected, Matt Hamill‘s shoulder injury will require clearance from a medical professional before he is permitted to resume training, though surprisingly enough he is also joined by three other athletes from the event who could potentially be out of action until June 2010 without a doctor’s treatment.
The complete list of suspensions is as follows:
John Howard – Suspended until 12/27/09 (no contact until 12/20/09 for laceration)
Dennis Hallman – Suspended until 2/05/10 (no contact until 1/20/10)
Justin Wren – Must have CT scan of facial bones and must be cleared by a doctor or no contact until 6/4/10
James McSweeney – Must have right third metacarpal and right hand cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contact until 6/4/10
Darrill Schoonover – No training or fighting until ophthamologic clearance, suspended until 2/5/10 (no contact until 1/20/10)
Matt Mitrione – Must have right wrist X-rayed and cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contact until 6/4/10, minimum suspension until 1/5/10 (no contact until 12/27/09)
Marcus Jones – Suspended until 2/5/10 (no contact until 1/20/10)
Matt Hamill – Must have left shoulder cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contact until 6/4/10, minimum suspension until 2/5/10 (no contact until 1/20/10)
Brendan Schaub – Suspended until 1/20/10 (no contact until 1/5/10)
