Vancouver Athletic Commission released its list of UFC 131 fighters that received suspensions due to their medical conditions.

After the successful UFC 131: Junior Dos Santos vs Shane Carwin event, all of the fighters who participated received a suspension order from the Vancouver Athletic Commission that was released on Tuesday. Junior Dos Santos and ten other UFC 131 fighters received a mandatory nine day rest order. Meanwhile, other fighters – including Shane Carwin – received a much longer suspension due to the injuries they obtained from the tournament.

Jason Young received the longest period of suspension. He had a tender right foot and laceration on his left eyebrow, medically suspending him for 180 days with a pending x-ray on his foot. If the x-ray didn’t find any severe injuries, he will be only under a 45-day suspension with no contact for 30 days.
