UFC 146 Medical Suspensions; Velasquez Out for 6 Months

It would seem that the mashing that former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez put on Antonio Silva wasn’t as one-sided as initially thought. Silva’s massive cranium ostensibly got some licks in there as well. It has been reported the AKA heavyweight may have suffered a broken hand. The former champion now finds himself on the shelf until November unless cleared by a doctor.

Other Lengthy suspensions were handed out to his opponent, “Bigfoot”, as well as Jamie Varner, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, and C.B. Dollaway.
