The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 finalist Manny Gamburyan — who suffered a fight-ending shoulder dislocation in his bout with Nate Diaz at the TUF 5 Finale — is suspended until December 21 unless he receives medical clearance from an orthopedic doctor that affirms he is fit to return before that time.

That’s the latest from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which recently issued it’s medical suspensions for the TUF 5 Finale that took place on June 23 from The Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rob Emerson — who was involved in the controversial bout with Gray Maynard the resulted in a “No Contest” — is the only other fighter with a major suspension. He must have a chest X-ray to rule out fracture or he too can’t compete until December 21.

Here’s are all the TUF 5 injuries/suspensions

Manny Gamburyan — Suspended until December 21 with shoulder injury unless he receives medical clearance.

Floyd Sword — Suspended until July 24, “no contact” until July 15.

Doug Evans — Suspended until July 24, “no contact” until July 15.

Brandon Melendez — Suspended until July 24, “no contact” until July 15.

Andy Wang — Suspended until July 24, “no contact” until July 15.

Brian Geraghty — Suspended until July 24, “no contact” until July 15.

Robert Emerson — Must have a chest X-ray to rule out fracture or he too can’t compete until December 21.
I think Emerson will end up be out longer than Manny
