UFC 169 Medical Suspensions List: Aldo, Lamas, Faber, and Barao Escape Injury Free

UFC 169 is well and truly done, and unfortunately wasn’t quite the night of excitement that we had hoped for. Jose Aldo kicked Ricardo Lamas around for 25 minutes, Urijah Faber was stopped early on by Renan Barao, and Frank Mir got hit in the face 139 times while only landing five strikes of his own.

The card produced 10 fights that went to the judge’s scorecards, two of which were, in my opinion, judged wrong. With 180 minutes of in-cage action in the books, there was obviously a laundry list of injuries to follow. Check out the official UFC 169: Barao vs. Faber II medical suspensions list:

Abel Trujillo was suspended for 30 days with no contact.

Jamie Varner was suspended for 30 day for a knockout loss, and also received an indefinite suspension pending a CT head scan, as well as a neurological evaluation.

John Makdessi was suspended for 60 days for facial lacerations.

Nick Catone was suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic clearance of his left knee.

Tom Watson was suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic clearance of his right elbow, as well as orthopaedic clearance of his right foot.

Al Iaquinta was suspended 30 days for a left lateral brow laceration, and suspended indefinitely pending orthopaedic evaluation of his right knee.

Kevin Lee was suspended indefinitely pending opthalmological clearance, as well as a CT scan of his facial bones.

Rashid Magomedov was suspended indefinitely pending an x-ray of his left foot.

Tony Martin was suspended indefinitely pending an MRI of his left knee.

Neil Magny was suspended for 30 days with no contact, and also received an indefinite suspension pending an x-ray of his skull and sinuses.

    "Urijah Faber was stopped early on by Renan Barao…"

    No. Urijah Faber was stopped early on by Herb Dean. The fact that he didn't even receive a suspension proves that.

      Yep, he was fine and in my opinion, Barao was the one going to be in trouble after that explosion and Barao knew it, thats why he pleaded with the ref to stop the fight. Faber is a beast as the fight goes on and I am sure Barao didn't want to deal with him later after such an expenditure swinging for the fences.
