By Tristen Critchfield Feb 2, 2016

Sage Northcutt has been suspended indefinitely following his submission loss to Bryan Barberena at UFC on Fox 18.

Northcutt, who tapped to an arm triangle at the 3:06 mark of round two this past Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., will need X-rays of his right foot and toes before he is cleared to compete again. He was also handed a 30-day suspension for a forehead laceration.

The New Jersey State Athletic Control recently released a list of medical suspensions from the event, which saw Anthony Johnson knock out Ryan Bader 1:26 into round one of the light heavyweight headliner. In addition to a mandatory 60-day suspension due to the knockout loss, Bader is out indefinitely pending a neurological exam and CT head scan.

Five other fighters from Saturday’s card were suspended indefinitely: Jake Ellenberger (left forearm), Carlos Diego Ferreira (left ankle), Rafael Natal (opthalmological clearance), Matt Dwyer (opthalmological exam) and Damon Jackson (opthalmological exam, right foot).
