Soon after Affliction's debut event in July and Fedor Emelianenko's quick main-event victory over Tim Sylvia, the California State Athletic Commission confirmed that the Russian fighter had been issued a 180-day medical suspension due to a right-hand injury.

The injury will keep Emelianenko from making a scheduled return at Affliction's Oct. 11 show.

On this week's edition of "Inside MMA," which airs tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET on HDNet, Bas Rutten discusses why he thinks Emelianenko is so susceptible to hand injuries.

And thanks to you partnership with the weekly MMA news show, we now have an exclusive preview clip of that conversation.

"It's the way he hits," Rutten said. "It's a little awkward. It's not an overhand. It's a really crazy punch, and he connects with it. That's the whole problem, once you connect with a crazy punch."

Bas might not be a doctor but he definatly knows striking. And any awkward punch can fold your wrist(or break bones in your hand if wrist/hand is taped) somthing has to give. I just hope Fedor can come back soon.

It's the fact that he generates so much power. It's like a pitcher who can thrown 100mph, injuries come. His hand bones simply can't take the constant impact.
