John Makdessi and Veronica Macedo could be looking at a lengthy time on the sidelines following their bouts at UFC Fight Night 170 in Brasilia, Brazil, on Saturday.

Makdessi, who dropped a unanimous decision to Francisco Trinaldo in a featured lightweight affair, is suspended 180 days pending clearance from an oral and maxillofacial doctor. At a minimum, the Canadian is out 30 days with 21 days of no contact.

Macedo, meanwhile, needs clearance for a right thumb injury or she too will be sidelined 180 days. Macedo lost a decision to Bea Malecki in a preliminary bantamweight scrap. Macedo received a minimum 30-day suspension with 21 days of no contact.

UFC Fight Night 172 took place at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil, and saw Charles Oliveira submit Kevin Lee with a guillotine choke in the third round of their lightweight headlining bout. Both Oliveira and Lee received the mandatory 14-day suspension.
