The California State Athletic Commission has medically suspended every athlete who competed in “UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche” this past Saturday.

The majority of the 24-fighter roster was issued a precautionary seven-day ban. However, Dan Henderson (Pictured), Josh Koscheck, Josh Neer and Brock Jardine could be riding the pine for up to six months.

Although, the foursome can return to action sooner with a doctor’s note.

Ronda Rousey defeated Liz Carmouche in the show’s featured attraction to retain her bantamweight crown. Both ladies were handed week-long suspensions.
