NSAC Extends Joe Stevenson’s Medical Suspension
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.
