Justine Kish, Vinc Pichel and Austin Arnett have all been sidelined indefinitely following their bouts at UFC on Fox 27.

The North Carolina Boxing Authority released a list of medical suspensions from this past Saturday’s event, which took place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C. All three aforementioned competitors must receive doctor clearance before their suspensions are lifted.

Kish, who lost a split decision to Ji Yeon Kim in a preliminary strawweight affair, requires medical clearance for a nasal fracture, as well as potential injuries to her right knee and left shoulder.

Pichel, meanwhile, must receive medical ophthalmology clearance on his right eye following a unanimous verdict over Joaquim Silva at lightweight.

Finally, Arnett is out indefinitely until he is cleared for nasal trauma, which includes an x-ray for a possible fracture. At a minimum, Arnett is suspended 30 days for a technical knockout loss to Cory Sandhagen at featherweight.
