Junior dos Santos could be facing six months on the sidelines following his five-round slugfest with Stipe Miocic at UFC on Fox 13.

Dos Santos must produce a negative CT scan to have his suspension reduced. The Brazilian must also avoid contact for 45 days due to a cut on his right eyebrow. Miocic, meanwhile, was suspended 45 days for a cut on his upper lip and must abstain from contact for 30 days.

The Arizona Boxing and MMA Commission recently released a list of medical suspensions from the event to MMAFighting.com. All suspension terms are retroactive to the date of the card, which took place at the US Airways Center in Phoenix on Dec. 13.

Seven other fighters are facing potential six month layoffs: Matt Mitrione, Joe Riggs, John Moraga, Jamie Varner, Joe Ellenberger, Henry Cejudo and Anthony Birchak.
