Five fighters, including UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, were issued indefinite medical suspensions following this past weekend's UFC 152 event.

The Office of the Athletics Commissioner of Ontario today released the suspensions to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC 152 took place Sept. 22 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, and in his fourth consecutive title defense, Jones submitted Vitor Belfort in the night's pay-per-view headliner...

Nothing about Belfort's broken hand? How does something like that work? He broke it prior to the fight but passed the pre-fight medical. Do these only pertain to things that happened in the fight? I would think that an injury is an injury and whether it actually occurred in the fight or not, they'd still have to get a medical suspension for it, but I don't know how these things work. Maybe he didn't tell them about the hand when they were examining him after the fight? Can anybody shed some light on this? I'm curious.

No surprise on Dunham there, unless I was seeing things I thought for sure he was licking the blood off of his face in round 3 to get everyone even more fired up.

Speculation here, but I'd assume they don't know about it.

they could be only talking about the fight injuries. it does seem weird that they didnt mention vitor but suspension or not he's still gotta let it heal and that means no fights until that happens. i actually liked vitor at 205. i think he could smash some people there if he wanted to make the move more permanent. seeing him at 205 reminded me of the early years.

I was thinking the same about Vitor. Physically, he looked beastly. He looked way more than 20 pounds bigger to me.

Cmon now I will explain...I will call it just excuses on Belforts part...
