The Ohio State Athletic Commission released the list of mandatory medical suspensions today issued to four of last Saturday’s Strikeforce event fighters.

Amanda Nunes and “Cyborg” Santos received the lightest suspensions with just 30 days while Antonio Silva and Yoel Romero both received 60 days for their KO losses.

Surprisingly, Daniel Cormier was not on the list of suspended fighters although it is expected that the Olympic wrestler and AKA fighter will have an extended layoff due to a hand injury suffered in his co-main event victory over Antonio Silva.

The full list of medical suspensions is as follows:

• Antonio Silva: Suspended 60 days due to KO loss/for precautionary reasons
• Yoel Romero: Suspended 60 days due to KO loss/for precautionary reasons
• Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos: Suspended 30 days due to KO loss/for precautionary reasons
