    18 guys suspended from one card?

    That’s got to be a new record.

    It also further proves just how brutal UFC 107 was.

  • RoadsideGraphix says:

    Looks like a lot of precautionary suspensions. 3 days with no contact is nothing.

  • GassedOut says:

    Yeah, standard suspension is 30 days with 21 days no contact. I’m getting the impression they want to err on the side of caution.

  • Dufresne says:

    3 days with no contact? Seriously? Basically, “Mir, go have fun, but no bar fights.” His hangover won’t even be gone in 3 days.

  • king mah mah says:

    18! Wow. Yeah i don’t get the 3 day suspensions. Unless it’s because of pending drug test results. I mean Mir wasn’t even touched, so there would be no reason for any kind of suspension.

  • king mah mah says:

    I think Diego is suspended pending a psychiatric evaluation! LOL
