All 22 fighters who participated in UFC 124 “St. Pierre vs. Koscheck” have been issued medical suspensions by the Quebec Athletic Commission.

The show, which took place Dec. 11 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, was headlined by a one-sided main event between welterweight king Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck (Pictured). The savvy champion used a jackhammer-like jab to break Koscheck’s orbital bone and close his right eye en route to an easy five-round decision. Koscheck received a 60-day suspension.

Also on the shelf for two months will be main card competitor Joe Stevenson, who fell victim to a beautiful Mac Danzig counter hook in the first round of their lightweight tilt.

Dan Miller, Joe Doerksen and Sean Pierson were all suspended for 45 days following hard-fought contests. The remainder of the event’s combatants received suspensions not longer than 30 days.
