Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier both must be having issues with their left eyes after their trilogy heavyweight title fight at UFC 252 on Saturday.MMA Junkie got the full roster from the Nevada Athletic Commission on Monday. Fighters can return earlier than the duration of their suspension if cleared by a doctor.

Miocic (20-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) and Cormier (22-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) had a grueling five-round bout to headline the event at UFC Apex in Las Vegas , with Miocic keeping the belt. A second round look at Cormier apparently tore his cornea, and that’s one of the issues “DC” will need to check out after the fight. Miocic, meanwhile, also needs an eye exam.

Outside of the main event, bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley (12-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) faces the longest medical suspension. He injured his leg in a TKO first round loss in the co-main event and will need to clear his ankle, otherwise he will be out until February 2021.
