Three fighters are facing 180-day suspensions as a result of UFC on ESPN 12 – but neither of the card’s headliners is among them.

On Tuesday, MMA Junkie acquired a full list of UFC on ESPN 12 medical suspensions from the Nevada Athletic Commission. Fighters can return sooner than the duration of their suspensions if cleared by a doctor.

Despite a back-and-forth battle for 25 minutes, Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker walked away relatively unscathed. Both men received a 60-day suspension due to a “tough fight.”

The three fighters facing the longest suspensions are Gian Villante, Brendan Allen, and Khama Worthy. All three combatants were handed potential six-month terms due to various injuries.

Villante suffered a hand injury in his main card loss to Maurice Greene, right after Allen sustained injuries to his nose and eye against Kyle Daukaus. Allen’s manager, Brian Butler, revealed the extent of his fighter’s injuries in a post on Sunday. As for Worthy, the promotional sophomore injured both his knee and hand in a win over Luis Pena, according to the medical report.
