Jon Jones, Roger Hollett, Charles Oliveira, Simeon Thoresen and Charlie Brenneman were all suspended indefinitely following UFC 152 on Saturday night.

Headlined by a light heavyweight title confrontation between reigning titlist Jones and ex-champion Vitor Belfort, UFC 152 took place Sept. 22 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Ontario’s Office of the Athletics Commissioner released the suspension information on Tuesday. Each of the 24 fighters who competed Saturday night was handed at least a precautionary 14-day suspension, with multiple competitors receiving longer terms.

A heavy favorite heading into his fourth light heavyweight title defense, Jones unexpectedly found himself caught in a tight armbar after taking challenger Vitor Belfort to the mat in round one. Though “The Phenom” was unable to elicit a tap from the champion, Jones confirmed in his post-fight interviews that the maneuver did damage his right appendage. Nevertheless, Jones managed to escape the hold and went on to submit Belfort with a fourth-round keylock to retain his title.

Additionally, Demetrious Johnson walked away from the UFC 152 co-main event as the promotion’s inaugural flyweight titlist, outpointing Joseph Benavidez in a split decision to earn the crown. The evening’s main draw aired live on pay-per-view and also saw Michael Bisping, Matt Hamill and Cub Swanson earn victories, besting Brian Stann, Roger Hollett and Charles Oliveira, respectively.
