Eight fighters received potential two-month medical suspensions following their respective performances at UFC Fight Night 60, including welterweight headliner Brandon Thatch and featherweight veteran Cole Miller, the Colorado State Boxing Commission (CSBC) announced on Tuesday.

Both Thatch and Miller came up short at UFC Fight Night 60, which took place Feb. 14 in Broomfield, Colo. Thatch fell victim to a thrilling fourth-round rear-naked choke against former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson in the night's main event, while Miller dropped a hard-fought unanimous decision to Max Holloway in the night's co-featured fight.

Both fighters, along with Patrick Walsh, Jim Alers, Michel Prazeres, Chas Skelly, Zach Makovsky, and Cody Pfister, will now be sidelined for upwards of 60 days due to damage sustained during the event.

Three additional fighters -- Efrain Escudero, Rodrigo de Lima, and James Moontasri -- received precautionary 30-day medical suspensions from the CSBC.
