Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida must spend two months on the bench after a knockout loss to Derek Brunson at UFC Fight Night 119.

That’s according to medical suspensions today obtained by MMAjunkie from the Brazilian Athletic Commission of MMA (CABMMA), which regulated the event this past Saturday at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. The event aired on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.

Machida’s (22-8 MMA, 14-8 UFC) first-round knockout loss to Brunson (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) left him at 1-4 in his past five outings.

Another serious suspension from the event was issued to bantamweight Marlon Vera, who could potentially be out six months if an X-ray validates an injury to his left foot. Vera (10-4-1 MMA, 4-3 UFC) suffered a unanimous-decision loss to slugger John Lineker (30-8 MMA, 11-3 UFC) on the FS1-televised main card.

All fighters from the card received a minimum suspension of 14 days with seven days of no contact during training. With the exception of Vera, CABMMA did not provide details on the nature of the fighters’ suspensions.

The full list of UFC Fight Night 119 medical suspensions, aside from the customary 14-day terms, include:

  • Lyoto Machida: suspended 60 days with 45 days no contact
  • Colby Covington: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact
  • Demian Maia: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Jack Hermansson: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Marlon Vera: suspended 180 days or until left foot is cleared early by X-ray; regardless, suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact
  • Niko Price: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Jared Gordon: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Hacran Dias: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Max Griffin: suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact
  • Christian Colombo: suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact
