The medical suspensions list for Saturday night’s UFC 129: GSP VS Shields event was released today and reveals that no fighter is expected to be out of action for more than 60 days.

Notable injuries on the night were GSP suffering an eye injury which is expected to heal by itself, but leaves him with a 60 day suspension, while Randy Couture was KO’d and lost a tooth after being the victim of a show-stopping flying front kick from Lyoto Machida, also resulting in a 60 day suspension.

Despite having a scary looking hematoma on his forehead following his fight with Jose Aldo, the damage to Mark Hominick was largely cosmetic and he’ll also be ok to continue fighting after 60 days on the sidelines.
