The New York State Athletic Commission issued no medical suspensions longer than 45 days following UFC 210.

Among those receiving potential 45-day layoffs were light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former middleweight king Chris Weidman. The NYSAC released a list of medical suspensions from the event to Sherdog.com on Tuesday.

UFC 210 took place at the Keybank Center in Buffalo, N.Y., on April 8 and saw Cormier retain his 205-pound title with a second round submission of Anthony Johnson in the evening’s main event. Cormier is suspended a minimum of 45 days pending NYSAC clearance, while Johnson received a 30-day sit. The NYSAC does not disclose specific reasons for its suspensions.

Meanwhile, Weidman received a possible 45-day layoff following his controversial second-round TKO defeat to Gegard Mousasi in the co-main event. The bout was halted when it was determined Weidman could not continue after Mousasi landed a pair of knees to the head. Initially, the blows were thought to be illegal before the ruling was overturned. Mousasi received a mandatory seven-day suspension following the bout.
