UFC Live 5 Medical Suspensions: 6 Fighters Out Indefinitely

By Mike Whitman Aug 17, 2011
Six fighters were dealt indefinite suspensions by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services following UFC Live 5 on Sunday.

Lightweight contender Jim Miller was among the fighters handed indefinite suspensions, as the New Jersey native appeared to sustain heavy damage during his three-round unanimous decision defeat to Benson Henderson at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Henderson was suspended 30 days for a left elbow injury.

Joining Henderson on the shelf indefinitely will be Amir Sadollah and Duane Ludwig, who engaged in a three-round slugfest in the evening’s first televised contest. C.B. Dollaway, who found himself on the receiving end of many strikes courtesy of Jared Hamman, will also sit out for the time being, as will Kyle Noke and T.J. O’Brien due to knee and rib injuries, respectively.

Also of note, main event competitor Dan Hardy was handed a 30-day suspension following his submission defeat to the retiring Chris Lytle. The Hoosier, who did not receive a medical suspension in the wake of his win, continually peppered the Brit with sharp punches for the better part of three rounds before locking up a guillotine to seal the deal with only 34 seconds remaining in the bout.
