Several fighters competing at UFC 241 this past weekend are looking at potentially lengthy medical suspensions for a litany of injuries.

On Monday, the State Athletic Commission released the medical suspensions in an email to MMA Fighting.

At the top of the card, Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier will not face lengthy suspensions at all despite engaging in a war that finally ended with a fourth-round knockout. Miocic reclaimed the heavyweight title and walked away from the fight relatively unscathed.

Miocic will face a seven-day mandatory suspension along with a potential 60-day suspension for a laceration near his left eye or he would require medical clearance. He faces a standard suspension of 45 days with 30 days of no contact regardless of the laceration on his eye.

As for Cormier, he has a mandatory seven-day suspension along with 45-day suspension and 30 days of no contact following his loss to Miocic.

Anthony Pettis faces up to a 180-day suspension (six months) due to a possible fractured foot as well as a possible fracture of his right orbital bone. Pettis suffered a broken foot after his three round battle with Nate Diaz, but it doesn’t appear his orbital bone was fractured according to his manager Abraham Kawa in a message sent to MMA Fighting on Monday.

Middleweight contender Paulo Costa is in a similar situation after he faced a potential 180-day suspension for a possible fractured right foot. Costa’s manager Wallid Ismail confirmed in a message to MMA Fighting’s Guilherme Cruz that the ian did not suffer a broken foot in the fight.
