After spending 28 months on the shelf, former Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight titlist Lyoto Machida is going to have to spend at least another two months on the sideline.

On Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) released its list of medical suspensions for UFC Fight Night 119, which took place this past Saturday night at the Geraldo Jose de Almeida Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. The 39-year-old Machida suffered his third consecutive brutal stoppage at the hands of middleweight Derek Brunson, who floored him and knocked him out cold at 2:30 of the opening round. As a result, “The Dragon” has been hit with a 60-day suspension with no contact for 45 days.

The only other notable medical suspension was given to bantamweight Marlon Vera, who lost a unanimous decision to big-punching Brazilian John Lineker. Vera has been provisionally suspended for 180 months, pending an X-ray of his potentially broken left foot. If cleared by a doctor, his suspension is reduced to 30 days with 21 days of no contact.
