The light heavyweight rematch between Jan Blachowicz and Jimi Manuwa at UFC Fight Night 127 earned both men a $50,000 post-fight bonus, but it could also leave both sidelined for an extended period.

According to medical suspensions released by the UFC to MixedMartialArts.com, Blachowicz and Manuwa are facing six-month sits pending doctor clearance. Blachowicz avenged a previous defeat to “Poster Boy” with a unanimous decision triumph in the co-main event at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday.

Blachowicz is out 180 days unless his left hand is cleared by a doctor. At a minimum he is suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days. Manuwa, meanwhile, has been suspended 180 days unless his nose is cleared by an ENT. Additionally, Manuwa has been suspended 45 days with no contact.

One other fighter from the event is facing a six-month layoff. Dmitriy Sosnovskiy, who scored a second-round submission of Mark Godbeer in a heavyweight tilt, must have a right orbital fracture cleared before he can compete again.
