Seven fighters including main-card competitors Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tito Ortiz and Mark Hominick received 60-day medical suspensions following Saturday's UFC 140 event.

Nogueira's 60-day suspension came as a result of what was first diagnosed as a dislocated shoulder. The injury ultimately proved to be a broken arm, a result of a nasty kimura finish by Frank Mir. Despite the horrific nature of the injury, UFC officials have since revealed Nogueira will not require surgery, and doctors are optimistic he may return in as little as nine months.

Ortiz needs a chest X-ray and an abdominal ultrasound before he returns to action, and Hominick has been asked to undergo an MRI or CT scan after his TKO loss to Chan Sung Jung.
