UFC 104 winners Lyoto Machida and Patrick Barry were among eight fighters from Saturday’s event in Los Angeles who were issued medical suspensions by the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday.
Machida, the UFC’s light heavyweight champ who won a controversial decision over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the UFC 104 headliner, was suspended for 60 days for a lip laceration, potentially delaying an immediate rematch with Rua that was reportedly being planned for UFC 108 on January 2.
Barry, who won “Knockout of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” for his second-round knockout of Antoni Hardonk, could be out up to six months due to a possible broken wrist.
The full list of medical suspensions included:
- Lyoto Machida – Suspended 60 days (left upper lip laceration)
- Ben Rothwell – Suspended 45 days (precautionary) and 60 days (right eyebrow laceration)
- Spencer Fisher – Suspended 45 days (precautionary) and 60 days (right eye laceration)
