Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori are both looking at six months off after their five-round war at UFC Fight Night 196.

Vettori (18-4-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) outlasted Costa (13-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) in this past Saturday’s main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, and both men took quite a bit of damage in their fight.

On Wednesday, MMA Junkie acquired a full list of the UFC Fight Night 196 medical suspensions handed out by the Nevada Athletic Commission from MixedMartialArts.com, the Association of Boxing Commission’s official record keeper.

Costa, who was deducted a point in the second round for an inadvertent eye poke, needs an X-ray on his right foot and his left eye cleared by a doctor, or he could be sidelined for 180 days.

Vettori is also potentially looking at six months as the Italian must have X-rays on both forearms and an MRI on his right knee before getting cleared to compete.
