Both Tony Ferguson and Josh Thomson are facing a potential six months on the sideline following their co-headlining encounter at UFC Fight Night "Mir vs. Duffee."

The California State Athletic Commission recently released medical suspensions from the July 15 event, which took place at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. Ferguson, who defeated Thomson via unanimous decision, must be cleared by a physician for a potential right eye fracture. Thomson, meanwhile, is looking at a lengthy hiatus unless he receives clearance for possible right elbow, right knee and forearm injuries.

Seven other fighters from the card are looking at potential six-month suspensions: Marion Reneau (rib fracture); Scott Jorgensen (left knee fracture); Sam Sicilia (lower left leg fracture); Jessica Andrade (left thumb fracture); Rani Yahya (head injury); Masanori Kanehara (right elbow fracture); and Sean Strickland (right knuckle injury).
