Three fighters received indefinite suspensions following UFC 171 as Robert Whiteford, Jimy Hettes, and former number one welterweight contender Carlos Condit have all been sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Of those three men, Whiteford was the only one who was victorious in his bout. He defeated Daniel Pineda via decision on the preliminary card. Also on the preliminary card, Jimy Hettes was TKO’d by Dennis Bermudez after being badly hurt several times in the bout.

For Condit, it was an awkward takedown that made him cringe as soon as he hit the mat. Once he stood up, a very aware Tyron Woodley, attacked the leg of Condit and was able to force a referee stoppage, as Condit crumpled to the ground with what would later be announced as a torn ACL.

He will receive surgery on Friday and will sit out most of the rest of 2014, if not all of it.
