Strikeforce medical suspensions and injuries for "Barnett vs. Kharitonov" on Sept. 10 in Cincinnati were released today by the Ohio Athletic Commission for the Showtime telecast held last Saturday night at the U.S. Bank Arena. 

Only five fighters that competed on the card were given a mandatory vacation, all of them predicated by knockout losses. 

Antonio Silva was bounced from the heavyweight grand prix by Daniel Cormier via stunning first round knockout and while Cormier may have broke his hand in the process, he does not appear on the injury report.

"Bigfoot," however, will have 60 days on the shelf to think about his crushing defeat.

Joining him at the end of the bench will be Roger Gracie, whose Brazilian jiu-jitsu expertise didn't help his chin absorb a couple of well-placed shots from Muhammed Lawal. Gracie will be out for at least 60 days to ponder his future in the fight game.

But that's not all.

Here are the complete Strikeforce: "Barnett vs. Kharitonov" medical suspensions (via MMA Weekly):

Antonio Silva -- Suspended 60 days following a knockout

Roger Gracie -- Suspended 60 days following a knockout

Yoel Romero -- Suspended 60 days following a knockout
