With UFC 159 in the rear view mirror, its time to assess the damage. The event claimed quite a few casualties before it had even commenced so lets take a look at the full medical suspensions courtesy of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission:

Jon Jones suspended indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance of left foot

Alan Belcher suspended indefinitely pending ophthalmological clearance of right eye

Phil Davis suspended indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance of left knee and X-rays of left thumb

Jim Miller suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan; minimum suspension 60 days for recovery

Yancy Medeiros suspended indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance of right thumb

Gian Villante suspended indefinitely pending ophthalmological clearance of left eye and X-rays of lower leg and ankle

Johnny Bedford suspended 60 days for facial laceration

Kurt Holobaugh suspended 60 days for lower lip laceration

Chael Sonnen suspended 45 days for facial laceration

Pat Healy suspended 45 days for facial lacerations

Steven Siler suspended 45 days for scalp laceration

Cheick Kongo suspended 30 days due to knockout loss

Sheila Gaff suspended 30 days due to TKO loss

Brian Caraway suspended 30 days for rest period

The news that Alan Belcher is facing is certainly not good. The long time UFC fighter already has had trouble with his eye, in fact it almost cost him his career. I certainly hope we can see him back in action soon. Also noteworthy is Jones' gory foot. If Jones is out for a lengthy period, I'm wondering how the division will shape up without him. This could certainly be a game changer.
