Five rounds in the UFC will take a toll on a fighter’s body, but 25 minutes between Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler left the two competitors in opposing positions following UFC on Fox 12.

The California State Athletic Commission on Monday released a full list of medical suspensions from the event to Sherdog.com, which took place July 26 at SAP Arena in San Jose, Calif.

Not only did Brown lose Saturday’s main event by unanimous decision, but “The Immortal” is also potentially going to be on the shelf for a maximum of 180 days with a possible fracture to the nasal area. If cleared by a physician, Brown could only be out of action for 30 to 45 days.

Meanwhile, Lawler was only handed a mandatory seven-day rest period by the commission.

Below is the full list of medical recommendations for all 24 of Saturday’s participants.
