Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently tied a ribbon around its UFC Fight Night 64: "Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop 2" mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Saturday night (April 11, 2015) on UFC Fight Pass inside Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland.

As you might expect, a bunch of people got hurt.

Chief among them was Gabriel Gonzaga, who was busted open by Mirko Filipovic in the night's main event (replay here). Joining him on the list of potential six-month suspensions, along with Joanne Calderwood, was co-main event slugger Jimi Manuwa.

That's not all.

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. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
