By Sherdog.com Staff Jul 7, 2014



UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman came away from UFC 175 with belt intact, but he did not escape unscathed.

The Nevada Athletic Commission on Monday released a full list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place July 5 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Weidman requires the most extensive medical attention of the card’s 20 competitors, as the 30-year-old must have his jaw, right elbow, right ribs and right ankle x-rayed and cleared by an orthopedic doctor before he can compete again. Opponent Lyoto Machida received a lesser suspension, with no contest until Sept. 4 due to a facial laceration.

Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey must receive an x-ray and clearance on her right hand, which required nine stitches after the bout.
