Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre might be taking a hiatus from the sport, but officially he’ll be cleared to return to the cage in less than three months.

Despite losing memory courtesy of Johny Hendricks’ punches, St-Pierre is good to go after 45 days and 30 days of no contact, according to medical suspensions received today from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which oversaw this past Saturday’s UFC 167 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Hendricks, who lost a split decision to St-Pierre in the event’s headliner, could be out for six months pending clearance of his right knee.

Most of the remaining competitors at the pay-per-view event escaped suspensions, though preliminary-card fighters Gian Villante and Cody Donovan both could be out for six months following hand injuries.

The complete list of UFC 167 medical suspensions includes:

  • Georges St-Pierre: suspended until 1/1/14 with no contact until 12/17/13
  • Johny Hendricks: suspended until 5/17/14 unless cleared by orthopedist for right knee, and suspended until 12/17/13 with no contact until 12/8/13
  • Chael Sonnen: suspended until 1/1/14 with no contact until 12/17/13
  • Rory MacDonald: suspended until 12/17/13 with no contact until 12/8/13
  • Josh Koscheck: suspended until 1/1/14 with no contact until 12/17/13
  • Ali Bagautinov: suspended until 5/17/14 unless cleared by orthopedist for left foot, and suspended until 12/17/13 with no contact until 12/8/13
  • Evan Dunham: suspended until 1/1/14 with no contact until 12/17/13 for left eyebrow laceration
  • Rick Story: suspended until 1/1/14 with no contact until 12/17/13 for left eyebrow laceration
  • Erik Perez: suspended until 12/17/13 with no contact until 12/8/13 for laceration on bridge of nose
  • Gian Villante: suspended until 5/17/14 unless cleared by orthopedist for both hands
  • Cody Donovan: suspended until 5/17/14 unless cleared via X-ray by orthopedist for right hand, and suspended until 12/17/13 with no contact until 12/8/13
