The Michigan Unarmed Combat Commission has issued its list of medical suspensions for UFC 123: "Rampage vs Machida," which took place on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010, from the Palace of Auburn Hills in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. 

Although seven of the 11 bouts were finished by submission or (T)KO, just five fighters were flagged for follow up visits with their doctors, the most obvious of which being former Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes, who will be on the sidelines for 60 days with no contact after B.J. Penn put his lights out in just 21 seconds.

The "Prodigy" came away unharmed and in fact barely even broke a sweat.

Also on the list of suspensions is lightweight grappling specialist George Sotiropoulos, who was put on an indefinite leave -- or at least until cleared by a doctor -- for getting poked in the eye during his second round submission win over Joe Lauzon.

But that's not all.

Here is the complete list of UFC 123 injuries and their medical instructions (via Heavy.com):

Matt Hughes: Suspended 60 days with 60 days no contact for knockout.

George Sotiropoulos: Suspended indefinitely until cleared by physician for eye poke.

Mike Lullo: Suspended for a minimum of 30 days and must have knee and thigh cleared by a physician.

Karo Parisyan: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 30 days for technical knockout.

T.J. O'Brien: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 30 days for technical knockout

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases.
