Following this past Saturday’s UFC 136 event in Houston, the Texas athletic commission has issued medical suspensions to five fighters, including UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and fellow headliner Gray Maynard, according to MMAjunkie.

Maynard received the longest suspension at 60 days after his fourth-round TKO at the hands of Edgar, who was suspended 45 days after nearly being knocked out himself in the opening round of the rematch.

Also suspended were Leonard Garcia (45 days), Eric Schafer (30 days), and Mike Massenzio (45 days).

UFC 136 fight salaries will not be released, but the event drew a sellout crowd of 16,164 to the Toyota Center in Houston for a live gate of $2.3 million, while Edgar, Joe Lauzon, Leonard Garcia, and Nam Phan earned $75,000 bonuses.
