UFC middleweight contender Lyoto Machida was handed a 180-day suspension by the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) following his UFC Fight Night 36 victory over Gegard Mousasi, who received a 30-day suspension in defeat.

Machida may return to action earlier if he receives X-ray clearance on his left foot, which “The Dragon” injured in his five-round bout with former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Mousasi. According to a report from MMAFighting.com, Machida has already undergone an X-ray, which indicated that his foot was not broken.

UFC Fight Night 36 took place this past Saturday at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, and featured another pivotal middleweight matchup in the co-main event, as Ronaldo Souza used a superior ground game to outpoint Francis Carmont. Both “Jacare” and Carmont received 14-day suspensions, and neither fighter may train with contact for a full week.

Also of note, Takenori Sato was given a 45-day suspension after suffering a 52-second knockout at the hands of fellow welterweight Erick Silva, who was handed a 14-day suspension following his quick win on the Fox Sports 1-broadcast main draw.
