It’s still unclear when and where will be the next UFC event go down, but some fighters will have to stay away from training after receiving medical suspensions following UFC Brasilia.

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) on Monday announced the full list of medical suspensions from Saturday’s Fight Night event in Brazil. Among the more notable suspensions were John Makdessi and Veronica Macedo, who need a doctor’s clearance to avoid a six-month suspension.

Makdessi lost a decision to Brazilian lightweight Francisco Trinaldo, while Macedo was lost a bloody three-round bantamweight decision to Bea Malecki.

Charles Oliveira and Kevin Lee engaged in a lightweight showdown in the main event of the evening, and both fighters were given 14 days each following Oliveira’s third-round submission victory. The same goes for Gilbert Burns, who stopped Demian Maia with punches in the opening round of their welterweight clash.
