Not surprisingly, Chuck Liddell was given the most serious of medical suspensions coming out of Saturday's UFC 88 in Atlanta. The former champ is suspended for 60 days and will require a CT Scan or MRI and a neurological evaluation before being cleared to fight again.

Rich Franklin is also suspended for 60 days for the serious cut above his right eye, while opponent Matt Hamill is suspended for 30 days.

Martin Kampmann is suspended 30 days for his TKO loss to Nate Marquardt. According to a post-fight doctor’s report, he had soreness in his jaw and “TMJ tenderness.”

Thiago Tavares is also suspended for 60 days and will require a CT scan to his face to evaluate his nose and “zygomatic arch” before being cleared to fight again.

Michael Patt is suspended for 42 days and will require a CT scan to fight again. He sustained a nasal septal fracture in his fight with Tim Boetsch.

Ryo Chonan is suspended for 42 days due to a large laceration on his right eye.

Matt Brown is suspended for 15 days due to a cut he sustained in his fight with Dong Hyun Kim.

The remaining fighters on the card were suspended for 7 days, standard practice for anyone fighting in the state of Georgia.

A report on the economic activity generated by the event is also forthcoming, said Matthew Carrothers, director of media relations for Secretary of State Karen Handel.

Here's some translation on some of the medical terms for the lay folks out there

TMJ Tenderness is a joint problem usually dealing with the jaw hinge

Zygomatic arches are basically "cheek bones"

A nasal septal fracture is just a fracture of the septum inside your nose. The wall between your nostrils.

TMJ tenderness, while it doesn't sound like a very big problem can actually be a huge problem. He may need some serious jaw restructuring, but let's hope not.

TMJ = Lock jaw



No.... TMJ = temporomandibular joint

TMJ is just an abbreviation for the joint that pivots your jaw. Lockjaw can affect the joint, but in no way does TMJ = lockjaw. tetanus = lockjaw, and tetanus actually effects more than just your jaw.

Yeah. That is pretty good. It's really hard to take anything you say seriously right now, Fleek.
