UFC 113 Medical Suspensions: Lyoto Machida Sidelined 60 Days

UFC 113 headliner and now-former light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida received a 60 day medical suspension from the Quebec Athletic Commission after suffering a first-round knockout to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at Saturday’s event in Montreal.

Jonathan Goulet was the only other fighter on the 11-bout card to receive a suspension of more than 14 days, as he’s been suspended for 30 days after suffering a second-round TKO to fellow welterweight Marcus Davis on the UFC 113 prelims.

Surprisingly, Jason MacDonald and Patick Cote, who suffered a broken leg and broken hand respectively in their UFC 113 losses, were issued just 7 day minimum suspensions.

Also suspended for 7 days were Rua, Alan Belcher, Joe Doerksen, John Salter, Kimbo Slice, Marcus Davis, Matt Mitrione, and Tom Lawler, while 14 day suspensions went to Jeremy Stephens, Johny Hendricks, John Salter, Joey Beltran, Josh Koscheck, Mike Guymon, Paul Daley, Sam Stout, TJ Grant, Tim Hague, and Yoshiyuki Yoshida.
