Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is fresh off its UFC 232 pay-per-view (PPV) event, headlined by the light heavyweight title fight pitting Jon Jones opposite Alexander Gustafsson. And while neither “Bones” nor “The Mauler” suffered any serious injuries on Dec. 29 in Inglewood, Calif., a handful of fighters could be riding the pine until early summer.

That’s according to the recent list of UFC 232 injuries and medical suspensions, provided by California State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and helpfully passed along by MMA Fighting. Leading the list of mandatory timeouts is former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski, who may have busted his beak in a decision loss to Walt Harris.

Have a look:

Andrei Arlovski: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician for possible fracture to nose

Walt Harris: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician for possible fracture to left knee

Douglas Silva de Andrade: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician for possible fractures; suspended 60 days or must be cleared by physician for laceration to left eye; regardless suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact

Curtis Millender: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician due to possible fracture to right elbow

Siyar Bahadurzada: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician due to possible fracture to jaw and left knee

Ilir Latifi: Suspended 60 days or must be cleared by physician due to laceration to left eyelid

Alexander Volkanovski: Suspended 60 days or must be cleared by physician due to laceration to left eyebrow

Alexander Gustafssson: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact due to KO

Cris Cyborg: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact due to KO

Chad Mendes: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact due to TKO

Cat Zingano: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact due to TKO; seven-day mandatory suspension due to eye injury — corneal abrasion

Bevon Lewis: Suspended 45 days no contest, 30 days no contact due to KO

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.
