UFC Mike Chiesa

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has medically suspended nine athletes who competed in Friday’s “The Ultimate Fighter: Live Finale” event.

Michael Chiesa (Pictured) not only left Las Vegas with a six-figure UFC contract in tow, but the lightweight was also issued a six-month medical suspension following his quick submission victory over Al Iaquinta. However, the bearded brawler could be back in action sooner if a doctor clears his injured left hand.

Pat Schilling was levied the same lengthy ban until his right arm gets examined.

The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Nevada hosted last weekend’s bash.

Here is the card’s official IR list:

Martin Kampmann: Suspended until August 1st, with no contact until July 17th for facial lacerations

Jake Ellenberger: Suspended until July 2nd, with no contact until June 23rd for precautionary purposes

Michael Chiesa: Suspended until November 29th for possible left-hand injury, but can return sooner with doctor clearance

Pat Schilling: Suspended until November 29th for possible right-hand and right-shoulder injuries, but can return sooner with doctor clearance. Suspended until July 2nd for precautionary purposes

John Cofer: Suspended until August 1st, with no contact until July 17th for precautionary purposes

Chris Tickle: Suspended until July 17th, with no contact until July 2nd for left-eye and lip lacerations
