PLAYERS: Conor HeunKazuo Misaki
The Ohio Athletic Commission has medically suspended every contestant that competed in this past Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey” event. Most were issued a mandatory seven-day ban, but eight athletes will be forced to ride the pine for longer. Miesha Tate (Pictured), who found her left arm bent in the opposite direction in an armbar submission loss to Ronda Rousey, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Roger Bowling and Conor Heun all face indefinite suspensions. However, each can return to action with the permission of their physician. Nationwide Arena in Columbus hosted this weekend’s extravaganza. Here are the fighters that will be out for longer than the commission’s mandatory ban (Courtesy of MMAJunkie):
