The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSAB) has released the medical suspensions and injuries for the fighters who participated in the UFC on FOX 15 fight card, which took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday evening (April 18, 2015).

Heading the list is Lyoto Machida, who lost to Luke Rockhold by rear-naked choke in the second round of the main event (highlights here). The former UFC light heavyweight champion is suspended indefinitely pending a CT head scan.

Check out the full list of medical suspensions and injuries per the NJSAB below:

Lyoto Machida: suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan

Chris Camozzi: suspended indefinitely pending orthopedic clearance of right elbow

Max Holloway: suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan, x-ray of jaw, x-ray of right thumb

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.
