Dominick Cruz has received several medical suspensions following his fourth-round KO loss to Marlon Vera at UFC San Diego this past Saturday.

The former UFC bantamweight champion has to sit for 45 days but could be on the sidelines for up to six months unless he gets cleared by an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor for a potential nose injury, per the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC). Though unconfirmed, it was suspected that Cruz suffered a broken nose after finding himself on the receiving end of a head kick.

Joining Cruz is Devin Clark, Lupita Godinez, Gabriel Benitez and Charlies Ontiveros, all of whom are facing six months away from the Octagon for injuries they suffered in their respective fights.
