UFC 284 co-headliners Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett need medical clearance to avoid a half-year on the sidelines.

The Combat Sport Commission of Western Australia released medical suspensions for the Feb. 11 pay-per-view event at RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. Among five facing the longest suspensions are the co-main event competitors, who fought for the interim featherweight title.

In a masterful performance, Rodriguez submitted Emmett via triangle choke in the second round. Details of their suspensions and other competitors on the card were not made public, likely due to medical privacy laws.
