“The Dream” is required to have his left orbital bone cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon before returning to action (click here to see why) while “The Hitman” must get clearance from an orthopedic doctor (right hand) prior to re-entering the Octagon.
But that’s not all
Here is the complete list of UFC on Versus 3 injuries and their medical instructions:
Todd Brown: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Thiago Tavares: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
C.B. Dollaway: Suspended for 60 days (precautionary reasons).
Martin Kampmann: Suspended indefinitely unless right hand cleared by an orthopedic doctor.
Diego Sanchez: Suspended indefinitely unless left orbital bone cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon.

“I usually have a game plan that usually lasts maybe four or five seconds. As soon as the fight starts and I go out there and I get hit, I’m like ‘That’s it’.” – Chris Lytle to UFC.com.
Chris Lytle (30-17-5) has a history of being in exciting bouts. The former fireman has won four fight of the night bonuses, two submission of the night bonuses and one knockout of the night bonus in his past ten UFC bouts. Now it seems like we know why.
Lytle knows that he can’t throw his game plan out the window against crafty veteran Brian Ebersole (46-14-1-1) when they meet at UFC 127 in the coming week.
“I hope to dictate the pace, I have to make the fight happen where I want it to happen,” Lytle said.

Not even winning “Fight of the Night” is enough to save UFC lightweights from the massive cuts still coming down after the merger with the WEC.
Gareth Davies brings word that British striker Paul Kelly (11-4) has been released from the promotion after his second round submission loss to Donald Cerrone (14-3) at UFC 126: “Silva vs. Belfort” on Feb. 5. The “sucker punch” reportedly had nothing to do with the decision to let “Tellys” go.
