Josh Barnett: Suspended with no contact until 02/26/14; additionally, must have right facial fracture cleared by surgeon or no contest until 06/27/14.

Dustin Poirier: Suspended until 01/27/14 with no contact until 01/18/14; additionally must have right shoulder cleared by orthopedist or no contest until 06/27/14.

Diego Brandao: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14.

Chris Leben: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14 due to facial lacerations.

Gleison Tibau: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14 due to laceration on right cheek.

Dennis Siver: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14 due to scalp lacerations.

Manny Gamburyan: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14; additionally must have MRI of left knee and needs orthopedic clearance or no contest until 06/28/14.

Estevan Payan: Suspended until 02/11/14 with no contact until 01/27/14.

The most noticeable suspensions were of course to Anderson Silva who fractured his tibia and fibia kicking Chris Weidman. The suspensions say he can't fight until late June, but he is more than likely out longer than six months with the extent of his injury.

Josh Barnett suffered a TKO loss to Travis Browne via elbows strikes and is also looking at six months off before he compete again due to a potential facial fracture.

Barnett is good but Barnett had better stand up and more tools to win.

I'm a big fan of Josh Barnett and was gutted to see Barnett lose to Josh Barnett.

So, does this mean that Weidman does not have a tear in his meniscus? In that case, we should have the defense against Vitor sooner than later!
