The Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services has released the official list of medical suspensions for last Saturday's UFC 140 event. All fighters from the card received precautionary suspensions, with eight fighters landing longer sentences.

As expected, heavyweight co-headliner Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira incurred the steepest penalty after nearly having his arm ripped from its socket by Frank Mir. "Big Nog" has been suspended for 60 days due to the loss, and will require clearance from an orthopedic surgeon before he can return to training.

Likewise, main card fighters Tito Ortiz and Mark Hominick will ride the pine for 60 days after suffering TKO losses. Ortiz requires a chest x-ray and abdominal ultrasound after eating a litany of body shots in his bout against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Hominick, meanwhile, must undergo a mandatory MRI or CT scan after his seven-second knockout loss to Chan Sung Jung

Undercard participants Jared Hamman, Rich Attonito, and Mitch Clarke also received lengthy suspensions due to a variety of injuries suffered during the event.

UFC 140 took place on December 10th at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. The complete list of medical suspensions can be read below. (via MMA Weekly)
