Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The post-mortem for Saturday’s UFC 155 event continues, with the latest news coming out detailing the fighters that have received medical suspensions following the event.

For the amount of abuse they took during the course of their fights, Junior Dos Santos and Joe Lauzon seem to have gotten off relatively lightly with 45-day suspensions. The heaviest potential suspensions were meted out to Tim Boetsch, Alan Belcher, Michael Johnson and Todd Duffee, who could all be out for up to six months.

In all, 15 of the 24 fighters that competed on December 29 received some form of medical suspension.
