Uriah Hall and Patrick Holohan were among five fighters who drew potential six-month medical suspensions as a result of injuries sustained at Sunday's UFC Fight Night 59 event, according to information released to MMAFighting.com by the Massachusetts State Athletic Commission.

Both Hall and Holohan picked up pivotal wins at UFC Fight Night 59, with Hall stopping late-replacement Ron Stallings with a first-round cut and Holohan dominating Shane Howell en route to a unanimous decision. Nonetheless both Hall (right knee) and Holohan (left ankle) will be required to obtain doctor's clearance on possible injuries or otherwise be forced to sit out six months.

Three additional undercard fighters received similar six-month suspensions: Johnny Case, Matt Van Buren, and Tateki Matsuda.

Main event winner Conor McGregor and co-main event winner Donald Cerrone both came away unscathed, although McGregor's opponent, Dennis Siver, will be sidelined 60 days as a precautionary measure.
