Main card fighters Claudia Gadelha and Luis Henrique da Silva were among 14 athletes to receive extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC Japan.

The UFC, which self-regulated the overseas event, released the show’s post-fight report Monday to Association of Boxing Commissions record-keeper The UG.

Gadelha and da Silva both suffered brutal losses on Saturday’s UFC Japan main card, with Gadelha sustaining significant damage in a unanimous decision defeat to Jessica Andrade, and da Silva falling victim to a highlight-reel first-round knockout courtesy of kickboxing champion Gokhan Saki. As a result, Gadelha will be forced to sit out 45 days before being allowed to return to active competition, while de Silva will be sidelined for 60 days.

UFC Japan took place Sept. 23 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The night’s main card aired live on FXX.
