Medical Report for UFC 133: Evans vs. Ortiz

The Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission today issued its medical suspensions for Saturdays UFC 133 in Philadelphia. Seven fighters on the card were given medical suspensions ranging from 30 to 60 days, with the exception of Rafael Natal who was suspended indefinitely.

For a card that was riddled with pre-fight injuries that branded the card as “cursed”, the post-fight injuries were very limited. The majority of the suspensions were for precautionary reasons, while the rest must be cleared prior to returning to competition.

Surprisingly Chad Mendes doesn’t appear on the list despite clearly injuring his right hand against Rani Yayha. Fighting on the SpikeTV portion of the fight card, Mendes defeated Yayhi by unanimous decision but favored his hand after the fight. He told Joe Rogan in the post fight interview he thought he broke it in the 2nd and Dana White mentioned the injury as well during multiple post event interviews.
