Several competitors from UFC Fight Night “Maia vs. LaFlare” are facing six-month layoffs following Saturday’s fight card in Rio de Janeiro.

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) on Monday released its list of medical suspensions from the event, which was headlined by Demian Maia’s five-round unanimous decision win over Ryan LaFlare.

LaFlare received one of the longest potential suspensions, as the New Yorker must have his right hand X-rayed and cleared by a doctor or else face 180 days on the shelf. Maia received a lesser suspension of 30 days without fighting and 21 days before resuming full-contact training.

Shayna Baszler is also looking at a six-month suspension after having her left knee kicked out by Amanda Nunes in the first round of their women’s bantamweight bout. Lightweight Cain Carrizosa also suffered a possible left knee injury. Both fighters can return to action sooner if medically cleared via MRI.

Additional 180-day suspensions were issued to Gilbert Burns (facial injuries), Edimilson “Kevin” Souza (nose injury) and Bentley Syler (orbital fracture).
