UFC Andrei Arlovski

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board has medically suspended 13 athletes who competed in Saturday’s “World Series of Fighting 2” event.

Several of the fighters were issued indefinite bans, including Andrei Arlovski (pictured) and Anthony Johnson, who met in last night’s main event.

Arlovski may have broken his jaw and will have to be examined by an oral surgeon before returning to action. Johnson, meanwhile, said after his unanimous decision victory that he may have fractured his right hand at some point during their 15-minute affair.

“Rumble” needs clearance from an orthopaedic doctor before coming back.

Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City hosted Saturday’s festivities.
