Former World Series of Fighting featherweight champion Lance Palmer was one of four fighters to receive extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of WSOF 26, the Nevada Athletic Commission announced on Tuesday.

Palmer, who dropped his title to Alexandre Almeida via unanimous decision loss, will be required to seek doctor's clearance on a potentially injured left thumb or be forced to sit out until July 2016.

Joining him on that list are Robbie Peralta (broken foot), Johnny Nunez (left thumb), and Gil Guardado (right wrist).

WSOF 26 was held at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. The event brought a close to WSOF's calendar year.
