The Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended six “UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill” contestants for various injuries sustained in their respective fights this past Saturday. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Frank Mir, Brian Stann and Jorge Santiago each received a six-month ban from the board. 

Rampage’s injury is clearly the most time sensitive. UFC president Dana White promised the former champ first dibs at Jon Jones’ light heavyweight crown should doctors clear his “fractured” left hand.

If Rampage isn’t able to answer the bell, Lyoto Machida will likely challenge “Bones” for his belt.

Oddly, Santiago was the only losing fighter to be issued the half-year suspension. The talented Brazilian was knocked unconscious by Brian Stann in the 2ndRound of their middleweight contest.

UFC 130 took place May 28th inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Here is UFC 130’s official IR list (Courtesy of MMAJunkie):

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson: Must have have left hand X-rayed, and if injured, suspended until Nov. 25, though he can be cleared by an orthopedic doctor; regardless, suspended with no contact during training until June 28
