There was good news today when the UFC 123 medical suspensions list showed that just five fighters face time out due to injuries following the event.

Indefinite suspensions were handed out to both George Sotiropoulos for an eye-poke, and Mike Lullo for damage sustained from repeated leg kicks.

Sotiropoulos should still be fine to take his place at UFC 127 in his native Australia in late February against Dennis Siver, a fight that was announced by Dana white following Saturday night’s event.

Matt Hughes will also have to sit out for 60 days after his knockout loss to BJ Penn.

Check out the full suspension list below.

  • George Sotiropoulos: Must be cleared by a physician before returning to competition.
  • Matt Hughes: Suspended 60 days with no contact during training for 60 days for precautionary reasons
  • Karo Parisyan: Suspended 30 days with no contact during training for 30 days for precautionary reasons
  • Mike Lullo: Must be cleared by a physician before returning to competition. Even if cleared, he faces a minimum suspension of 30 days for precautionary reasons.
  • T.J. O’Brien: Suspended 30 days with no contact during training for 30 days for precautionary reasons
