Winners and losers alike received indefinite medical suspensions following this past Saturday’s UFC 281 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Headliners Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya are among 19 fighters who need medical clearance before being allowed to fight again, according to medical suspension terms released by the New York State Athletic Commission, which regulated the pay-per-view event.

Details on the suspensions were not released; the NYSAC is among the commissions which shield injury information based on medical privacy laws.

Pereira stopped Adesanya via TKO in the fifth round in a stunning comeback win. The deposed champ is required to sit out 60 days, while the new champ gets 30 days.

All fighters received a mandatory seven-day medical suspension, as is customary following events.
