The UFC has medically suspended 13 athletes who competed in last Saturday’s “UFC on FUEL TV 6” event. Featured fighters Rich Franklin (Pictured) and Cung Le could be riding the pine for as long as six months. Franklin needs to have his left thumb examined, while Le requires an x-ray on his right elbow before returning to action. Both fighters can come back sooner with a doctor’s note. Regardless, Franklin will have to sit the sidelines for 45 days after getting viciously put to sleep by Le. UFC on FUEL TV 6 took place inside Cotai Arena in Macau. Because China lacks the governing body to sanction a mixed martial arts show, UFC officials oversaw the event – as customary with most out-of-country Octagon cards. Here is the card’s official IR list (Courtesy of MMA.tv): Tom DeBlass: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Yasuhiro **********: 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact Motonobu Tezuka: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Jeff Houghland: 60 days no contest, 45 days no contact Jon Tuck: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Jon Tuck: 180 days or negative urinalysis and normal renal ultrasound Jon Tuck: Indefinite; must have MRI of right shoulder Tiequan Zhang: 180 days or orthopedic clearance of left thumb Tiequan Zhang: Indefinite; must have ENT clearance of nasal fracture Mac Danzig: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Mac Danzig: 180 days or negative x-ray of left thumb and left elbow Takanori Gomi: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Paulo Thiago: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Stanislav Nedkov: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Thiago Silva: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Thiago Silva: 180 days or negative x-ray of right hand Cung Le: 30 days no contest, 21 days no contact Cung Le: 180 days or negative x-ray of right elbow Rich Franklin: 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact Rich Franklin: 180 days or ortho. clearance of left thumb
