The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released the official list of medical suspensions for last Saturday's The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale. Ten fighters from the card received suspensions.

As expected, middleweight headliner Jason Miller incurred a steep penalty after suffering a nasal fracture in his bloody loss to Michael Bisping. "Mayhem" has been suspended until June of next year, though it's possible for a physician to clear him to return sooner.

Likewise, TUF 14 featherweight winner Diego Brandao will ride the pine until mid-2012 after suffering an injured left hand and jaw in his submission victory over Dennis Bermudez. Surprisingly, the damage to Bermudez's left arm may not have been as significant as it appeared in realtime, as the 24-year-old will only be required to sit out until early January.

Fellow castmates Louis Gaudinot, Stephen Bass, and Bryan Caraway also received lengthy suspensions due to a variety of injuries suffered during the event.

The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale took place on December 3rd at the The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The complete list of medical suspensions can be read below. (via MMA Mania)
