UFC 78 Medical Suspensions

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board has handed out two medical suspensions for UFC 78:

  • Joe Doerksen has been suspended for 60 days after suffering a fractured orbital bone in his knockout loss to Ed Herman.
  • Akihiro Gono, who posted a second-round submission victory over Tamdan McCrory on the event’s undercard, has also been suspended indefinitely due a wrist injury.

Houston Alexander and Luke Caudillo did not receive any medical suspensions despite knockout losses. Additionally, Chris Lytle, who lost his bout following a doctor stoppage due to a cut above his eye, did not receive any suspension.

Both Doerksen and Gono will have to be medically cleared before returning to competition.
