UFC 235 was a memorable card, packed to the edges with wild scraps and thrilling stoppages. An unfortunate side-effect of this kind of card, of course, is a prevalence of lengthy medical suspensions.

MMAjunkie has obtained a list of UFC 235 medical suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

As expected, Mickey Gall, Tyron Woodley, and a few other vanquished fighters are facing lengthy layoffs. Surprisingly, however, main event winner Jon Jones is also facing a long sit thanks to an issue with his foot. Undercard winner Johnny Walker could also be out for awhile after he injured his shoulder in his post-fight celebration.
