Max Holloway and Kelvin Gastelum absorbed incredible amounts of punishment in their respective title bouts at UFC 236, and as a result, both are facing indefinite medical suspensions.

The Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission on Monday released a full list of medical suspensions from the event, which took place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta this past Saturday night.

Holloway, who was battered and rocked repeatedly in a decision loss to Dustin Poirier in the evening’s headliner, is sidelined indefinitely pending CT scan results. At a minimum he will be out for 45 days. Poirier, the newly crowned interim lightweight champion, also received a 45-day sit.

Gastelum, meanwhile, also needs CT scan results to lift his indefinite suspension following a five-round loss to Israel Adesanya for the interim middleweight belt in the co-main event. Gastelum received a mandatory 60-day suspension, while Adesanya got a 45-day term.

Three fighters from the UFC 236 card are facing potential 6-month layoffs: Dwight Grant (right distal bicep), Jalin Turner (right knee) and Wilson Reis (left foot).
