The medical suspensions list for last weekend’s UFC 175 event has now been released and shows that despite the fact that Lyoto Machida had more visible damage on Saturday night, it was actually the defending champion Chris Weidman who suffered the more significant damage overall.

Weidman has suspected injuries to the left side of his jaw, his right elbow, ribs and ankle that could keep him out until early next year depending on the severity of them. By contrast, Machida will be cleared to fight again by September.

As was reported post-fight, Ronda Rousey burst a cyst in her right hand during her 16 second KO win, and she’ll require an x-ray to establish if there is any other damage which could lead to a potential six month suspension.

Thanks to gratuitous close-ups in the Octagon everybody knows that Uriah Hall broke one of his toes during his win, and unsurprisingly that means a six month suspension is looming for him, though he can be cleared by a physician earlier.

Russell Doane (right thumb), Urijah Faber (left rib), Kenny Robertson (right elbow), Bruno Santos (broken nose) and Luke Zachrich (left hand) are also looking at up to six months on the sidelines too.

Check out the full list of suspensions below.
