Gabriel Gonzaga could be out for six months following his third-round technical knockout loss to Mirko Filipovic at UFC Fight Night in Poland.

The UFC released the complete list of medical suspensions from the April 11 event to mixedmartialarts.com. Since there is no sanctioning body for MMA in Poland, the UFC regulated last Saturday’s card at the Krakow Arena.

After losing the first two rounds, Filipovic rallied in the third stanza, staggering the Brazilian with a pair of elbows before finishing the heavyweight fight with elbows and hammerfists on the mat. Gonzaga must be cleared by a negative CT of his head and face before he can compete.

Meanwhile, strawweight contender Joanne Calderwood is facing six months on the sideline following her upset loss to Maryna Moroz. The Scottish striker tapped to an armbar 1:30 into the opening frame of the featured 115-pound contest and as a result, must receive orthopedic clearance of her right elbow.

Four other fighters received 180-day suspensions following UFC Fight Night: Jimi Manuwa, Sheldon Westcott, Yaotzin Meza and Anthony Hamilton.
