Henry Corrales and Antonio McKee are among six fighters facing a potentially long layoff following Bellator 228.

The California State Athletic Commission released a list of medical suspensions from the event on Monday. Bellator 228 took place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Saturday and saw Gegard Mousasi take a split verdict over Lyoto Machida in the evening’s main event. Both Mousasi and Machida received mandatory seven-day medical suspensions, as did everyone else on the card not facing a longer term.

Meanwhile, Corrales must be cleared by a physician for a left elbow injury following a unanimous decision loss to Darrion Caldwell in the opening round of the featherweight grand prix. Corrales was also suspended for 60 days pending doctor clearance due to a cut to his right eye.

McKee returned to active competition for the first time since November 2014 and scored a second-round technical knockout victory against William Sriyapai in a preliminary bout. The father of rising star A.J. McKee is facing a 180-day layoff unless he is cleared by a physician for a right knee injury.

Four other fighters from Bellator 228 are facing 180-day sits: Emilio Williams (right knee), Jonathan Quiroz (right hand), Mike Jasper (left ankle) and Weber Almeida (left thumb).
