Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre was one of seven fighters to receive 60-day medical suspensions in wake of UFC 129 on Saturday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, according to the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services.

St. Pierre (Pictured; file photo) defeated Jake Shields by unanimous decision in the main event to retain his 170-pound crown but suffered an eye injury in the process. One of his trainers, Greg Jackson, deemed the injury “significant.” St. Pierre, 29, has won nine consecutive fights, six of them by unanimous decision. Shields, who saw his 15-fight winning streak come to an end in his second UFC appearance, was suspended for two weeks for precautionary reasons.

Meanwhile, featherweight title contender Mark Hominick was also suspended for 60 days after he went five grueling rounds with 145-pound champion Jose Aldo. The Brazilian raised a tennis ball-sized hematoma on Hominick’s forehead with a short elbow strike on the ground. Hominick must undergo a CT scan before being reinstated. Aldo received a 30-day suspension due to facial lacerations.

UFC hall of famer Randy Couture, light heavyweight Jason Brilz, welterweight Sean Pierson, bantamweight Charlie Valencia and lightweight Kyle Watson were also suspended for 60 days for various reasons.

Georges St. Pierre: Suspended 60 days for eye injury; must be cleared by an ophthalmologist before he can return.
