On Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released the complete list of UFC Fight Night 56 medical suspensions.

The most glaring suspensions belong to Colby Covington, who submitted Wagner Silva, and Warlley Alves, who earned a controversial decision win over Alan Jouban in the co-main event, as both are facing up to 180 days on the sideline unless they can get cleared by a doctor.

The night’s biggest loser in terms of the actual outcome of their fight, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, who suffered a 34 second knockout loss to Ovince Saint Preux in the night’s main event, was handed a 60-day suspension. Undefeated bantamweight prospect Thomas Almedia was also handed a 60-day suspension following his decision win over Tim Gorman.

UFC Fight Night 56 took place Nov. 8, 2014 at the Tancredo Neves gymnasium in Uberlândia, Brazil.
