Strikeforce Poster Fedor Werdum

The California State Athletic Commission has medically suspended five “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum” contestants for various injuries sustained during this weekend’s fights inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.

Fortunately for main event fighters Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum, they avoided the IR and will be afforded the opportunity to immediately get back into the gym to hone their skills.

While Fedor didn’t suffer much damage during his :69 second scrap, the pain of collecting his second professional loss as a 6-to-1 favorite will certainly be haunting him for years – if not the rest of his life.

Here is the complete roster that will be forced to sit the sidelines, courtesy of MMAMania:

Gareth Joseph: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons pending a new physical.

Ron Keslar: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for precautionary reasons pending a new physical.

Josh Thomson: Suspended 180 days (180 days no contact) for a rib fracture pending physician’s clearance.

Jan Finney: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for knockout loss pending a new physical. Additional suspensions of 60/60 for right facial lacerations and 180/180 for orbital fracture pending physician’s clearance.

Scott Smith: Suspended 45 days (30 days no contact) for knockout loss pending a new physical. Additional suspension of 60/60 for left facial laceration pending physician’s clearance.
