UFC 166 Medical Suspensions: Dos Santos Out Indefinitely, Velasquez May Have Broken Jaw

UFC 166 delivered in so many ways; close fought thrillers, a slick submission, a barn burner of a title fight and plenty of hefty knockouts. As usual, a card with such excitement is not without cost to it’s athletes.

The fighters at UFC 166 certainly put it all on the line, with some fighters paying more than others. I was surprised to see that Cain Velasquez may have broken his jaw against JDS, and that TJ Waldburger came away unscathed after being carted to hospital on a stretcher. Check out the full list:

    How does news come up with "may have broken jaw"? I know writers here re only reporting what they are seeing from media, but usually when I see this, it later states that it isnt broken just bruised or something along those lines. Exception being Struve, but they knew his was broken. I suspect a crack if anything, it didnt seem to bother Cain, and a broken jaw usually has big effects, like missing the post ight presser.

    Even if Cain is out for 10 months, we have GSP, WIEDMAN, PETTIS, MIGHTY MOUSE RHONDA, and BONES to keep the show on the road until he can defend again. It ***** but as long as we don't get a Dominic Cruz situation again all is good.
