While the main event of UFC 185 “Pettis vs. dos Anjos” did not warrant any significant medical suspensions, five other competitors from the event are facing indefinite layoffs.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation released its full list of medical suspensions to MMAFighting.com earlier this week.

UFC 185 took place Saturday at American Airlines Center in Dallas and saw Rafael dos Anjos defeat Anthony Pettis in the main event. While specific injuries were not made public, both headliners seemingly escaped relatively injury free. Dos Anjos is suspended until March 30, while Anthony Pettis is out until April 4.

Outside of Ryan Benoit, the five fighters who received indefinite suspensions were all defeated in their latest Octagon appearances. The four other fighters are: Josh Copeland, Roger Narvaez, Jake Lindsey and Larissa Pacheco.
