While the 14-second main event of UFC 184 did not warrant any significant medical suspensions, five other competitors from the event are facing six-month layoffs.

The California State Athletic Commission on Sunday released its list of medical suspensions to Sherdog.com.

UFC 184 took place Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles and saw women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey retain her title by submitting Cat Zingano. Rousey and Zingano escaped injury free and were handed mandatory seven-day suspensions.

One half of the show’s co-main event, Raquel Pennington, suffered potential fractures in both hands and will need to submit an X-ray before being cleared to return. Her opponent, Holly Holm, was given a seven-day rest period.

Other significant suspensions included Tim Means, who will need to be cleared by a doctor for a possible elbow fracture, and his opponent, Dhiego Lima, who may have fractured his foot in defeat.
