UFC Heavyweight Brock Lesnar WWE

The California State Athletic Commission has suspended 13 fighters for various injuries sustained during this Saturday’s UFC 121 event inside the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Former heavyweight title holder Brock Lesnar not only starred in the much anticipated show, but the former WWE superstar will headline the card’s IR list as well.

Lesnar will be forced to ride the pine for a maximum of 180 days, for what is believed to be facial lacerations and an eye injury. However, the controversial wrestler can return to action after just 60 days with clearance from a ophthalmologist.

As expected, freshly minted heavyweight king Cain Velasquez did not receive a ban for his effortless four minute and 12 second shellacking.
