The dust has settled on the World Series of Fighting’s fourth event, and subsequently, the California State Athletic Commission has released the list of medical suspensions.

Most notably, WSOF president Ray Sefo was suspended for 45 days for “precautionary reasons” after dropping his latest fight, and a total of six fighters including Gesias Cavalcante, Tyson Griffin, Gerald Harris, Antonio McKee, John Robles, and Victor Valenzuela will all receive six month suspensions. These suspensions can be cleared early by a physician.

You can read the full list of suspensions below.

  • Brandon Hempleman: Suspended 60 days with no contact during training for 60 days due to a forehead laceration, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Ray Sefo: Suspended 45 days with no contact during training for 30 days for precautionary reasons
  • Gesias Cavalcante: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to a knee injury, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Tyson Griffin: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to a neck injury, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Gerald Harris: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to a possible hand fracture, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Lewis Gonzalez: Suspended 60 days with no contact during training for 60 days due to an eyelid laceration, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Antonio McKee: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to vision loss in his right eye, unless cleared early by a neurologist
  • John Robles: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to possible shoulder, knee and elbow injuries, unless cleared early by a physician
  • Victor Valenzuela: Suspended 180 days with no contact during training for 180 days due to a possible knee injury, unless cleared early by a physician

The California State Athletic Commission also released the full breakdown of the fighters’ payouts from the event. Tyrone Spong, who defeated Angel DeAnda, took home the biggest payday at $31,000, including a $9,000 win bonus.

Gerald Harris, who defeated Jorge Santiago, took home $30,000, along with WSOF president Ray Sefo, who lost his fight to Dave Huckaba. Interestingly, even after his bonus, Huckaba took home less than half of Sefo’s purse, who was paid a flat sum with no win bonus option.
