Glover Teixeira didn’t emerge unscathed from his title-winning performance at UFC 267.

The new light heavyweight champ needs an MRI to avoid a six-month suspension, according to medical suspensions released on Tuesday by official ABC records keeper mixedmartialarts.com.

Teixeira, 42, submitted Jan Blachowicz to win the title in an amazing career comeback. Blachowicz received a mandatory seven-day term after his loss.

Teixeira was among 17 fighters who received medical suspensions beyond the mandatory seven-day term by the UFC, which regulated the event this past month at Etihad Arena. The promotion serves as the de-facto athletic commission in jurisdictions without state regulation and follows the Nevada Athletic Commission’s statutes.

A total of six fighters received 180-day terms that could be lifted with medical clearance.
