UFC 77 Medical Suspensions Announced

The Ohio Athletic Commission has released the official list of medical suspensions stemming from UFC 77: Hostile Territory.

Kalib Starnes, Eric Schafer, and Rich Franklin have all been medically suspended for 30 days because of precautionary reasons. Franklin’s medical suspension will most likely become longer because of the surgery he underwent to correct a second straight broken nose. I’m sure Starnes will need some extra time because of his cut as well.

Forrest Petz has been medically suspended for 60 days and will need clearance from a doctor before he is permitted to fight again. There was is no indictation behind the reasoning for Petz having to be medically cleared.
