Default 112 Medical Suspensions

The Ultimate Fighting Championship issued medical suspensions to seven fighters following this past weekend's UFC 112 event at Concert Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Among those suspended is headliner Demian Maia, who suffered a lopsided unanimous-decision loss to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at the April 10 headliner.

Maia's suspension could last up to 180 days.

Because no regulatory body exists in the UAE, the UFC and specifically UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner, the former head of the Nevada State Athletic Commission oversaw the show and handled medical suspensions, drug testing and similar duties.

Maia, who suffered cuts and heavy facial swelling during the five-round pay-per-view main event, must have a CT scan of his head and face. He's suspended 180 days but can be cleared early by a doctor if the CT scan reveals no longterm damage. Regardless, Maia is suspended 60 days with no contact in training for 45 days for precautionary reasons.

Preliminary-card fighter Rick Story also faces a suspension of up to 180 days because of right-knee and left-elbow injuries. He can be cleared early by a doctor following X-rays. Regardless, though, he's suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days for precautionary reasons.

Preliminary-card fighters Brad Blackburn and Matt Veach were each issued a 45-day suspension with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Main-card fighters Kendall Grove and Renzo Gracie, as well as preliminary-card fighter Phil Davis, were issued 30-day suspensions with no contact for 21 days for precautionary reasons.
