Middleweight headliners Jack Hermansson and Ronaldo Souza led a field of 17 fighters to be issued medical suspensions in the aftermath of UFC Fort Lauderdale.

The Florida State Boxing Commission released the event’s finalized medical suspension report to MMA Fighting on Tuesday.

Hermansson defeated Souza via unanimous decision this past Saturday in UFC Fort Lauderdale’s main event to cement himself as a legitimate title contender in the 185-pound division. As a result of potential damage sustained in their contests, both Hermansson and “Jacare” will be forced to sit out 30 days before being allowed to return to active competition, per Florida commission officials.

Undercard fighter Ben Saunders drew the longest sentence, as he was suspended 60 days for his second-round TKO loss to Takashi Sato.

UFC Fort Lauderdale took place April 27 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. The night’s main card aired live on ESPN+.

A complete list of UFC Fort Lauderdale’s medical suspensions can be seen below.
