    UFC on FOX 10 medical suspensions: Adriano Martins among four fighters given extra terms
    Martins, who was knocked out by Donald Cerrone on this past Saturday’s FOX-televised event, is benched for 90 days with 60 days no contact, according to the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation, which today provided medical suspensions to MMAjunkie.

    UFC on FOX 10 took place at Chicago’s United Center. The event’s main card aired live on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

    In total, four fighters on the card received more significant suspensions than the remaining 18, who received mandatory 15-day terms.

    Not on the list was main-event lightweight Josh Thomson, who came to the post-event news conference with his right arm in a sling and his right hand bandaged after saying he broke his thumb during the first round against Benson Henderson. Also absent from the official list sent by the state was co-main event heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga, who tweeted news of a broken hand that would require surgery.

    Mike Rio, who was knocked out by a wheel kick on the prelims, is suspended for 45 days with 30 days no contact.

    After a second-round TKO loss to Eddie Wineland, Yves Jabouin received the same term.

    Additionally, heavyweight Walter Harris, who was the first of three fighters on the card to be stopped via head kick, received a 45-day suspension with 30 days no contact.

    Nikita Krylov dropping to light heavyweight after knockout win over Walt Harris at UFC on FOX 10
    "Al Capone," who told MMA Fighting (through his interpreter) he's ready to see how well his body responds to a weight cut in pursuit of the light heavyweight division.

    "He gonna change the weight next time to a lower weight class. He usually loses three to four kilograms when he starts to really work out. He has to try once to see how it would work. After first fight in lower weight, he will know [about its advantages]."
    Alex Caceres: UFC wanted Sergio Pettis to beat me and 'keep the train going'
    "Bruce Leeroy" -- winner of two post-fight bonuses -- explains to MMA Fighting:

    "I feel like they wanted him to beat me, keep the train going. I think they thought he might out-strike me and beat me up and what not. I didn't mind. I feel like that's how it is with every fight. They put me in there to lose. That's not a big deal, I just keep surprising people then."

    30 post-event facts about 'UFC on FOX 10: Henderson vs. Thomson'


    UFC on FOX 10 was the first event in UFC history to feature three knockout finishes stemming from head kicks. Four events (UFC 70, UFC 126, UFC on VERSUS 6, UFC Fight Night 32) were tied for the previous record with two.

    Two of those knockouts were credited to Daron Cruickshank (14-4 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Donald Cerrone (22-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC), who became the sixth and seventh fighters in UFC history to earn two or more head-kick knockouts in the organization.

    UFC on FOX 10 drew an announced attendance of 10,895 for a live gate of $863,655. By comparison, UFC on FOX 6 drew 16,091 for $1.27 million in 2013 while UFC on FOX 2 drew 16,963 for a $1.27 million in 2012.

    Cerrone and Sergio Pettis earned $50,000 UFC on FOX 10 fight-night bonuses. Alex Cacares, however, was awarded two bonuses for a total of $100,000, making him just the third bantamweight in UFC history along with Scott Jorgensen (UFC on FOX 5) and Michael McDonald (UFC Fight Night 26) to double up.

    Total fight time of the 11-bout card was 2:18:56.

    Betting favorites went 8-3 at the event.
    Henderson has earned all eight of his UFC victories by decision. He is the first fighter to ever win his first eight fights with the organization by decision. The win over Thomson moved his UFC record to 3-0 in fights that are ruled a split decision.

    Henderson is the first former UFC lightweight champion to earn an immediate victory after losing his belt.

    Henderson’s four takedowns landed give him a total of 45 in his UFC/WEC career, moving him into third place all-time in lightweight history behind Gleison Tibau (71) and Clay Guida (48).

    Five of Thomson’s six career losses have come via decision. “The Punk” is a mere 6-5 in fights that are decided by the judges.

    Thomson’s four takedowns landed in his loss to Henderson are the second most in his 20-fight UFC/Strikeforce/PRIDE career.

    Gonzaga suffered just the second decision loss of his career and his first since Oct. 23, 2010 – a span of 1,190 days (more than three years) and seven fights.

    Cerrone recorded just the third knockout victory of his 29-fight career.

    Cerrone earned his 13th UFC/WEC fight-night bonus, the most of any fighter in the combined history of the two organizations. “Cowboy” has earned a total of $555,000 from those bonuses.

    Cerrone’s 10 knockout/submission victories in UFC/WEC lightweight competition are the second most in history behind Nate Diaz (11).

    Adriano Martins (25-7 MMA, 1-1 UFC) suffered a knocked loss for just the second time in his career and the first time since April 7, 2008 – a span of 2,119 days (nearly six years) and 18 fights.

    Jeremy Stephens (23-9 MMA, 10-8 UFC) improved to 3-0 since dropping to the UFC featherweight division.

    Darren Elkins (17-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) suffered the first decision loss of his 21-fight career.

    Elkins attempted four submissions in his loss to Stephens, earning him sole possession of first place in UFC featherweight history with 14.
    Alex Caceres’ (10-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) five-fight unbeaten streak is the longest of his MMA career. “Bruce Leeroy” is 5-1 with one no-contest since dropping to the UFC bantamweight division.

    Caceres’ five UFC victories are the second most of any cast member from “The Ultimate Fighter 12,” behind Michael Johnson (six).

    Caceres’ submission of Sergio Pettis (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at 4:39 of Round 3 is the second latest ever in a three-round UFC bantamweight fight. Only Bryan Caraway’s tap-out of Johnny Bedford at 4:44 of Round 3 at UFC 159 occurred later in a fight.

    Caceres’ last-second submission was also the second latest rear-naked choke victory ever in a three round UFC fight, preceding Forrest Griffin’s submission of Mauricio Rua at UFC 76 by just six seconds.

    Eddie Wineland’s (21-9-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC) seven knockdowns in UFC/WEC bantamweight competition are the most in divisional history.

    Yves Jabouin (19-9 MMA, 4-3 UFC) has been knocked out or submitted in seven of his nine career defeats.

    Chico Camus (14-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) has earned his past six MMA victories by decision.

    Yaotzin Meza (20-9 MMA, 1-2 UFC) was defeated by decision for the first time since Oct. 24, 2009 – a span of 1,554 days (more than four years) and 11 fights.

    Hugo Viana (8-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) has earned seven of eight career victories by decision.

    Viana’s 79 significant strikes landed against Junior Hernandez (13-6 MMA, 0-2 UFC) were the most of any fighter on the card

    Mike Rio (9-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC) dropped his third consecutive UFC fight after winning his promotional debut. “Wolverine” suffered the first knockout loss of his career against Cruickshank and has been finished in all three of his UFC defeats.

    Mike Rhodes (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) suffered a decision loss for the first time in his career.

    Nikita Krylov (16-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has finished his opponent by first-round knockout or submission in all 16 of his career victories.

    Krylov’s head-kick finish of Walt Harris (6-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at 0:25 of Round 1 marked the sixth fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history.

    Damn gabe broke his hand too!?! I still think his cardio was his downfall anyway. As far as Thompson goes; I thought he would've retired back when he was getting injured all the time. I hope he heals up and comes back strong. I don't feel like his title hopes have been completely dashed as of yet.

    Dana White: After 'typical Ben Henderson fight,' UFC title shot not likely next
    “If you had Henderson winning the fight, it wasn’t by that wide of a margin,” he told Las Vegas’ KVVU FOX 5 Las Vegas. “The fight was a lot closer. I don’t think either guy really went after it and tried to pull out the win.

    “As far as Ben Henderson fights go, this is the typical Ben Henderson fight. This is the way his fights go. He’s a grinder, and he grinds out decisions.”
    “Ben Henderson lost twice to Pettis, the champion, and he got destroyed last fight,” White said. “He didn’t do anything that’s going to have anybody screaming, ‘Oh, I want to see him get another shot at Pettis.’”

    Josh Thomson considering retirement after UFC on FOX 10 loss
    “I’ve got to sit down with (my team and the UFC) and talk about the direction of how this all wants to go,” he said. “I love this sport, I love being around these guys, I love being in the back. Everyone in my locker room knows, I was back there with smiles … this is great. I love it. This is the best. Honestly, I’d love to work for FOX and do some commentating – I just want to be a part of it.”
    “I love the sport. I don’t want to stop,” Thomson said. “I still want to be around it. But everybody needs to know that their time has come. Maybe it’s not mine right now, but I also don’t want to be that person who fights until they don’t know when it’s time to quit.”

    Man, Sergio Pettis is 2 years younger than me and he just got given 50 k, and he didn't even win! That's so crazy to think about for me right now. (not that he lost the fact that there are people younger than me making bank already)

    Also I believe this is the second card in a row where all the favorites on the main card won right?

    and my bad I didn't realize the co main event got switched.
    Cause he was signed by Zuffa to fill out the roster for a card. He wasn't a holdover from the Strikeforce roster say like Thomson is. Just my take but one fight in organization under those circumstances doesn't really make you a one of their fighters.
