Title challengers Alex Perez and Jennifer Maia failed in their quests to become champions at UFC 255 — and they will now face six-month medical suspensions.

Perez suffered a first-round submission defeat to Deiveson Figueiredo in their flyweight headliner on Saturday while Maia was outpointed by Valentina Shevchenko in their women’s flyweight title encounter in the co-main event.

Although it seemed like Perez took little damage during the fight, he suffered a hand injury and will now require an X-ray and doctor’s clearance if he wants to compete before May.

Maia, meanwhile, suffered a broken nose and will also require a doctor’s clearance. The Brazilian is also suspended mandatorily until January 6 with no contact until mid December.

In addition, the likes of Cynthia Calvillo, Brandon Royval, Joaquin Buckley, Ariane Lipski, Nicolas Dalby, Daniel Rodriguez and Alan Jouban are also facing potential six-month sits for various injuries.
