Daniel Rodriguez picked up the biggest win of his career this past Saturday night, but it may have come at a price.

After earning a unanimous decision win over the returning Kevin Lee, Rodriguez needs to get his left hand X-rayed and could be shelved for six months unless cleared beforehand by a doctor, according to medical suspensions issued by the Nevada Athletic Commission and released by ABC records keeper mixedmartialarts.com.

Five other fighters could also be facing six-month sits: Gilbert Urbina (left knee, left wrist), Brady Heistand (right knee, chipped tooth), Wellington Turman (right great toe), Jamall Emmers (left knee) and Guido Cannetti (right shoulder, left knee)

Giga Chikadze, who picked up a third-round TKO win in the main event over Edson Barboza, received a 30-day suspension, while Barboza was given a 45-day sit.
