On Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released the list of UFC 179 medical suspensions.

The most glaring suspension is the six months handed to light heavyweight Phil Davis, who earned a dominant unanimous decision over former title contender Glover Teixeira in the night’s co-main event. ‘Mr. Wonderful’ will need clearance on his right hand before stepping back into the cage.

Former WEC contender Scott Jorgenson could also face up to six months on the sidelines with a rib injury he suffered in his first submission loss to Wilson Reis on the preliminary card.
