Stevenson, who scored a unanimous-decision victory in the televised contest, originally thought he suffered a broken jaw in the bout. However, after a trip to the hospital, Stevenson learned he instead had a broken nose.

“The Ultimate Fighter 2” winner, who has since emerged as a top UFC lightweight contender, was originally suspended until Sept. 25 with no contact until Sept. 16 for precautionary reasons after a post-fight examination. However, after getting a report from the hospital, the NSAC now requires Stevenson to have his broken nose cleared by a ear-nose-and-throat (ENT) doctor. Otherwise, his suspension runs until Feb. 22. If cleared, Stevenson can compete no sooner that Sept. 25, and no contact is allowed until Sept. 16.

Unless I am wrong, I don't remember seeing him bleeding at any time during the fight. Is it possible to break your nose without it bleeding?

How they confused a broken jaw with a broken nose is beyond me...

They could have thought he broke his maxilla bone, which is the upper jaw. Especially considering that he didn't bleed.

Instant swelling could have staunched blood flow but.. ehh.. you never know with injuries. They do all kinds of weird stuff

Well they claimed to have missed Diego's staph infection, which is something that I think is absurd


Now, I've never experienced a broken jaw, but I have had my nose close to being broken twice and it didn't bleed at all.

However, if any one can confirm this, but, do you think Joe could have given that lengthy post fight interview if his jaw was broken?

If it was his Maxilla, absolutely.

If it was his mandible, hah... there'd be a lot of difficulty involved and he could probably squeak it out, but it'd be pretty noticeable.
