They really don't mean anything. All the suspensions really do is make a fighter go get cleared by a doctor before they can fight again, that's about it.

You know, I was about to get frustrated with Cormier then the ref separated them and Mir basically dove into the clinch again and he did it more than once.I don't think its fair to try and put all the blame on Cormier.

Where is Jordan Mein? He got beaten down and TKO'd, split wide open, possibly broken nose.

Shouldn't Nate Diaz have to get an MRI after those kicks to the head?

In the third round Cormier cracked Mir across the forehead with a hard right hand. He didn't land with the knuckles, but instead with the backs of his fingers. That is probably what hurt his finger.

Highlights a point that some don't realize or forget: you can win in dominating fashion and still screw something up that takes you out for a while. My third fight was very one sided but I ended up with a jumbo hematoma on my shin that jacked up my leg for 2 months. Ridiculous when you are on the receiving end!

There was so much hugging going on I was afraid that he was out because he caught more than that.
