Saturday’s UFC Vegas 38: Santos vs. Walker main event may have been light on action, but the bout appears to have taken its toll on the participants.

Thiago Santos defeated Johnny Walker via five-round unanimous decision on Saturday at UFC APEX in Las Vegas and now both light heavyweights could potentially be out for six months according to the official list of medical suspensions acquired by mixedmartialarts.com.

UFC Vegas 38 was overseen by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Santos requires multiple X-rays for his left finger, left foot, left knee, and left ribs. Should any of those X-rays produce a positive result, “Marreta” requires clearance from an orthopedic doctor or he will be out until April 1. Walker needs an X-ray and clearance for a possible left foot injury or he will face the same suspension.

Also potentially unable to compete for six months are Niko Price (left knee), Krzysztof Jotko (left foot), Devonte Smith (right orbital), and Johnny Eduardo (right orbital).
