Medical Supension for:
UFC on FX 6
Dec. 15 (aired Dec. 14 in the U.S. due to the time difference)
Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

As is standard in events where no government regulatory body is available, fomer Nevada State Athletic Commission head and current UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner oversaw the process.

All UFC on FX 6 fighters received mandatory 21-day suspensions. Additional suspensions issued included:
•Robert Whittaker: suspended six months due to a right-hand injury, though a doctor can clear him early.
•Rousimar Palhares: suspended six months due to a right-foot injury, though an orthopedic doctor can clear him early.
•Chad Mendes: suspended six months due to a left-foot injury, though a doctor can clear him early.
•Joe Beltran: suspended six months due to a right-hand injury, though a doctor can clear him early.
•Mike Pierce: suspended six months due to facial injuries, though a maxillofacial surgeon can clear him early; regardless, suspended for 30 days for precautionary reasons.
•Brendan Loughnane: suspended six months due to a left-foot injury, though a doctor can clear him early.
•Mike Wilkinson: suspended six months due to a jaw injury, though a doctor can clear him early.
