Chuck Liddell was suspended for 60 days and will require a CAT scan or MRI with a neurological exam before being cleared to fight again after his KO loss to Rashad Evans. Chuck was not going to be fighting in the next few months anyways, so not a huge deal.
Rich Franklin was also suspended for 60 days due to the cut he had over his eye, which was ripped open by a grazing Matt Hamill punch in the first round of their fight. It looked like they were considering stopping the fight at one point when it was looked at, but the fight was allowed to continue.
Thiago Tavares received a 60 day suspension and will require a CAT scan to evaluate the damage to his nose and “zygomatic arch” before fighting again.
Michael patt received a 42 day suspension and will also require a CAT scan to be cleared again.

Everybody else received a standard 7 day suspension as everybody fighting in Georgia receives this automatically.
