Five undercard fighters from last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night could be sidelined for half a year due to injuries sustained during the Nov. 7 show.

Sherdog.com on Monday obtained a list of medical suspensions from the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA), which oversaw the event at Geraldo Jose de Almeida State Gymnasium in Sao Paulo.

The highest-placed fighter on the card to receive a 180-day suspension was Polish lightweight Piotr Hallmann, who sustained a broken nose in his knockout loss to Alex Oliveira. Hallmann must have the nasal fracture cleared by a specialist or else sit out for six months.

Neither fighter involved in the main event was hit with a major suspension. Winning middleweight Vitor Belfort must sit out 14 days with no contact training for seven days, while Dan Henderson -- who was knocked out in the first round by a Belfort head kick and follow-up punches -- must rest for 45 days with no contact for 30 days.
