Three fighters could be sidelined for up to six months following Saturday's UFC on Fox 1.

Aaron Rosa, Paul Bradley and Norifumi Yamamoto were all handed conditional 180-day suspensions for various injuries by the California State Athletic Commission, who released suspension information to Sherdog.com on Thursday.

Rosa is facing a possible left wrist fracture after outpointing Matt Lucas at the Nov. 12 event, while Bradley may have fractured his left elbow in his decision loss to Mike Pierce. Yamamoto also ails on his left side following his defeat to Darren Uyenoyama, as “Kid” may have suffered a fractured finger on his left hand. Uyenoyama did not escape from the bout unscathed, as the Octagon debutant must sit out 60 days due to a left eyebrow laceration.

Though 180 days is the maximum suspension for the trio of fighters, each may be cleared early by a physician. UFC on Fox 1 emanated from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and marked the promotion's first appearance on network television.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was also hit with a suspension following his first-round knockout loss at the hands of Junior dos Santos. The American Kickboxing Academy standout must sit out 45 days with no contact for 30 days due to the technical knockout loss.

Clay Harvison and Mackens Semerzier were also handed 45-day suspensions for their respective technical knockout defeats to DeMarques Johnson and Robert Peralta, and neither fighter may spar with contact for 30 days. Additionally, Semerzier received another suspension of 60 days due to a scalp laceration.

Cain Velasquez: suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days due to TKO

Clay Harvison: suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days due to TKO

Norifumi Yamamoto: suspended 180 days possible fracture to left hand finger
