The complete list of UFC Fight Night 35 fighter injuries and medical suspensions for those who competed at the "Rockhold vs. Phillippou" mixed martial arts (MMA) event this past Wednesday night (Jan. 15, 2014) from the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia, was released on Thursday by the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission.

Leading the list of boo boos is middleweight Derek Brunson, who was suspended indefinitely because of a broken jaw suffered against Yoel Romero in main card action (more on that here).

The main event of the evening featured Luke Rockhold rocking Constantinos Philippou via first-round technical knockout. Philippou received a 30-day suspension while Rockhold received a mandatory seven-day term. Georgia's commission hands down mandatory suspensions for all fighters who are in action.
