Strikeforce Medical Suspensions

The California State Athletic Commission released the official list of medical suspensions stemming from last weekend’s Strikeforce: Four Men Enter, One Man Survives event that took place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.

Falaniko Vitale, Trevor Prangley, Bryson Kamaka, and Chris Drumm have all been medically suspended for 45 days and with no contact for 30 days.

Paul Buentello has been medically suspended for 60 days and can also have no contact in training for the same amount of time because of lacerations around his eye. A similar situation may also occur for Bobby Southworth who was medically suspended for 45 days with no contact for 30 days but may have his suspension extended to 60 days and without contact if a doctor does not clear a laceration above Southworth’s left eye.

Both Alistair Overeem and Brian Schwartz have been medically suspended for 180 days and with no contact for the same amount of time. Overeem has a possible fracture in his finger and his suspension can be reduced after clearance by a physician. Schwartz has a possible fracture in his left hand. If Schwartz is found to not have a fractured hand, he will not be required to serve any of the suspension.

The biggest suspensions were received by Sean Salmon and Sam Morgan who were both medically suspended for an indefinite amount of time. However if and when the fighters are cleared by a doctor, they will be required to serve a 45 day suspension without contact for 30 days.
