Affliction: Banned – Medical Suspensions

Below are the medical suspensions following the Affliction: Banned event, which took place on July 19.  Interestingly enough, the length of some of the suspensions could put some fighters’ immediate title hopes in jeopardy – especially Fedor Emelianenko‘s as he is due to put his WAMMA heavyweight title on the line against Andrei Arlovski on October 11.  Here are the suspensions:
