UFC 103p

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has just released the medical suspension list for UFC 103, and it ain’t pretty. The Lone Star State’s governing body suspended the entire 26-man UFC 103 cast for various injuries sustained in their respective bouts this past weekend.

This makes it back-to back UFC pay-per-view shows where all of the fighters received some sort of suspension as the Oregon State Athletic Commission did the same thing following UFC 102 a couple weeks back.

Like last time, most fighters were handed the minimum of seven days, however some were suspended indefinitely, including former PrideFC stud Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. Apparently the TDLR doesn’t feel that CC has fully recovered from being slapped silly by Junior dos Santos in the evening’s co-main event.

UFC 103 took place Saturday inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Here is a complete rundown of the medically suspended list:

Vitor Belfort (suspended until Sept. 27) def. Rich Franklin (suspended until Oct. 20)

Junior Dos Santos (suspended until Sept. 29) def. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (suspended indefinitely)
