The Nevada State Athletic Commission has issued mandatory medical suspensions to 11 fighters from this past weekend’s UFC 207 event.

MMAjunkie recently obtained the list of suspensions from the NSAC, which oversaw the Dec. 30 event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the headliner, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes (14-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC) scored a quick win over ex-champ Ronda Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) for her first title defense. In the co-headliner, Cody Garbrandt (11-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) dethroned Dominick Cruz (22-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) via unanimous decision to claim the bantamweight belt.

Both Cruz and Rousey have been given 45-day suspensions.
