Anthony Johnson ‏@Anthony_Rumble
@AndreiArlovski i hope you are doing ok bro. Heal up fast and get back at it. God bless

WSoF 2 Medical Suspensions issued by the New Jersey State Athletic Commission:

Anthony Johnson: Suspended indefinitely, pending orthopaedic clearance of right hand.
Andrei Arlovski : Suspended indefinitely, pending oral surgeon clearance of jaw.
Tyson Nam: Suspended 30 days, for KO.
Marlon Moraes: Suspended indefinitely, pending x-rays of right hand and right foot.
Paulo Filho: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan; 30 days for recovery.
Josh Burkman: Suspended indefinitely, pending x-ray of right wrist/hand.
Aaron Simpson: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan and facial bones; 60 days for KO.
Gesias Cavalcante: uspended 60 days, for laceration.
Justin Gaethje: Suspended indefinitely, pending x-ray of right thumb.
Alexandre Pimentel: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan, 60 days for KO.
Cameron Dollar: Suspended 30 days for KO.
Igor Gracie: Suspended indefinitely, pending orthopaedic clearance of right clavicle.
Tom Marcellino: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan, neurology clearance, and orthopaedic clearance of right foot.

The most dramatic injury of the evening was to Andrei Arlovksi's jaw, and teeth. What appears to be a break and missing teeth likely occured at the end of the first round, when Johnson knocked Arlovski down twice.

The bout likely would have stopped then, but Arlovski was saved by the bell. There are reports that the bell sounded 8 or 9 seconds too late. Arlovski fought valiantly for the next two rounds, ultimately losing a unanimous decision to Anthony Johnson.

If I hadn't watched the fight, and just read that list of suspensions, I'd have thought this was Vale Tudo in a back alley.
Good to see they're putting safety first. Phone Post

Paulo Filho: Suspended indefinitely, pending CT head scan

Considering the way he fought, sounds about right.

And it was a great event, Bas was better than usual. Seems he has got his head right now.

Great event. Man, Arlovski was tough as hell and hung in there with that cracked jaw. Was great to see both main eventers show respect after the fight. Phone Post

The bell sounded 8 or 9 seconds too late? Thats an eternity if you are trying to defend yourself and recover. Kind of a big deal.

So much for Andrei having a glass jaw.  He fought through it like a boss.  Sad to see him lose as he's one of my favorites, but both he and AJ brought it last night.  Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Couple things.... 1) regarding the "reporting" and relaxing because humans make mistakes, is this supposed to be a real news source, and is the writer considered a real writer/journalist? If so, then editing is essential, and mistakes are not as forgiveable as they would be in a normal message board post. If you make mistakes at your job, do you tell your boss 'relax, humans make mistakes'?

2) To gain so much weight while none of it being in a giant Roy Nelson sized gut while training in a camp full of guys who piss hot sounds like PED's, and destroying a guys jaw and teeth is the price that people pay when thorough testing is not conducted and rules aren't followed and penalties aren't paid.

Just watched the fight and the bell at the end of the 1st round was EASILY 7 or 8 seconds late. Arlovski has a legitimate complaint. If the bell had ended the round at the proper time, AA wouldn't have got his jaw broken at the end of the 1st and it would have been a different fight. WTF WSOF?!?!

I rewatched it and it was about 8 seconds after the clock on the tv display and 4 seconds after you could near the mat pounding signifying 10 seconds remaining. So yes, the round was too long and at the wrong time for Arlovski.

Relax? I was replying to the guy that posted the quote with the question mark. I posted at about the same time as Kirik. Wasn't trying to be a dick. Why don't you relax your ass kissing? Phone Post
