Adriano Martins highlighted a list of four fighters to receive extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC on FOX 10, the released to MMAFighting.com on Monday.

Making just his second appearance under the UFC banner, Martins suffered a devastating first-round head kick knockout at the hands of Donald Cerrone on UFC on FOX 10's main card, which broadcast live on FOX. As such, Martins will be sidelined 90 days, with a mandatory 60-day period of no contact.

Additionally, three other fighters who suffered knockouts at the event were handed 45-day suspensions with 30-day periods of no contact: Yves Jabouin, Mike Rio, and Walt Harris.

The remaining 18 fighters on the card all received precautionary 15-day suspensions, including lightweight headliner Josh Thomson, who complained of a broken hand during his fight with Benson Henderson and subsequently appeared at the post-fight press conference with his arm in a sling, as well as Gabriel Gonzaga, who will be forced to undergo surgery Monday for a broken right hand.

"The suspensions provided below were automatic suspensions and were given ringside. The determination to suspend a fighter for a hand injury is discretionary and the amount of time is indefinite and dependent upon further medical clearance after the event," Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation communications manager Susan Hofer told MMAFighting.com.
