The UFC Fight Night 36 medical suspensions report has been released and show that main event winner Lyoto Machida faces the lengthiest spell on the sidelines.

Machida defeated Gegard Mousasi by decision on the night, but he later revealed that he had injured his foot in the third round and was handed a six month suspension as a result.

However, Machida has since had an X-Ray that has shown that, despite his foot being badly swollen, it’s not broken and so that should mean that there’s a good chance he’ll be able to get the length of his suspension reduced.

If so, that could keep him in the title hunt at middleweight, with ‘The Dragon’ indicating post-fight that he’s eager to fight the winner of Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort which takes place at UFC 173 on May 31st.
