UFC on FX 3 Medical Suspensions: Neer, Wineland, Jorgensen Face Potential 60-Day Layoffs

By Tristen Critchfield Jun 12, 2012
UFC on FX 3 main card participants Josh Neer, Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen are each facing 60-day suspensions following their bouts last Friday at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.

Also, Matt Grice has received an indefinite medical suspension due to a possible left foot fracture suffered in his triumph against Leonard Garcia on the evening’s preliminary card. The Florida Boxing Commission released the records from the event Tuesday on its website.

Wineland’s second round TKO of Jorgensen received “Fight of the Night” honors, but the former WEC champion received a 60-day suspension for a significant laceration above his forehead incurred during the bout; Jorgensen’s 60-day layoff is for a possible concussion. Meanwhile, Neer will be sidelined for precautionary reasons following his first-round knockout loss to Mike Pyle.

Grice, who said he probably broke his left foot throwing a kick against Garcia, must receive orthopedic clearance before he can resume training.
