UFC 177 consisted of eight fights, and of the 16 fighters involved, only half received medical suspensions longer than the seven day mandatory rest period.

Sherdog.com obtained the full list of medical suspensions from the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday.

Leading the list of medical suspensions is debuting Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Joe Soto, who could face a layoff of up to six months resulting from a potential right-hand fracture and nose laceration. The injuries sustained occurred during Saturday’s pay-per-view main event, which saw Soto lose via fifth-round knockout to bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw.

The co-main event between Danny Castillo and Tony Ferguson was the only bout where both fighters involved were dealt suspensions longer than seven days.

Below is the list of medical recommendations for eight of Saturday’s participants.
