Five UFC 136 competitors have been medically suspended for injuries suffered during last weekend’s UFC 136 event in Houston, Texas.

The lengthiest of which was handed to down to main event participant Gray Maynard, who will be out 60 days for his knockout loss to UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar.

UFC 136 took place Saturday, October 8 from the Toyota Center in Houston Texas. The pay-per-view event featured a main event for the UFC’s lightweight title in a trilogy fight between champion Frankie Edgar and Challenger Gray Maynard that saw Edgar knockout his opponent in the fourth round. In the co-main event, Jose Aldo was able to outpoint Kenny Florian after five-rounds of action to win a unanimous decision victory.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation released the medical suspensions list this afternoon. Besides the aforementioned Maynard suspension, Frankie Edgar, Leonard Garcia, Eric Shafer and Mike Massenzio will all be sidelined for a specified amount of time.

The full list of medical suspensions is as follows:
• Frankie Edgar: Suspended until Nov. 23
