With UFC 163 in the rear view mirror, all that is left to do is analyze the fallout of the event in the form of the medical suspension list. Leading the pack for the event were Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung, who both suffered nasty injuries in their Featherweight title fight.

The Brazilian athletic commission released the following stats in the wake of Ufc 163:

Jose Aldo: suspended 90 days with 60 days no contact for fracture in right foot

Chan Sung Jung: suspended 180 days or until cleared by doctor, needs an MRI

Phil Davis: suspended 180 days or until cleared by doctor, needs an X-ray of right foot

Lyoto Machida suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Cezar Ferreira: suspended 14 days with seven days no contact

Thiago Santos: suspended 90 days with 60 days no contact

Thales Leites: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Tom Watson: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

John Lineker: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Jose Maria: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

Anthony Perosh: suspended 14 days with seven days no contact

Vinny Magalhaes: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

Amanda Nunes: suspended 180 days or until cleared by doctor, needs X-ray of right rib

Shiela Gaff: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

Sergio Moraes: suspended 14 days with seven days no contact

Neil Magny: suspended 14 days with seven days no contact

Rani Yahya: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Ian McCall: suspended 180 days or until cleared by doctor, needs X-ray of right hand

Iliarde Santos: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Josh Clopton: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Francimar Barroso: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact

Viscardi Andrade: suspended 14 days with seven days no contact

Bristol Marunde: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact

So not as bad as we may have originally suspected for Aldo and Zombie, but a still a lengthy lay off for the champion. The positive here is that the layoff might leave enough time for a clear number one contender to seperate themselves from the pack, in the extremely busy Featherweight division.
