A bloody UFC Vegas 49 card has left several fighters the worse for wear.

According to the list of medical suspensions acquired by mixedmartialarts.com, Priscila Cachoeira is one of five fighters who could be out of action until August following Saturday’s event at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Cachoeira defeated Ji Yeon Kim in a closely contested bout that earned both women the Fight of the Night award and an extra $50,000 each. The Brazilian flyweight requires clearance from an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor, an OMF (oral and maxillofacial) doctor, or an ophthalmologist for a right nasomaxillary suture fracture, as well as clearance from an orthopedic doctor for a first metacarpal base fracture to avoid the six-month suspension.

The other winners potentially out until August are Armen Petrosyan (left foot), Jonathan Martinez (left foot), and Carlos Hernandez (left knee). UFC newcomer Ramona Pascual also suffered a nose injury in a loss to Josiane Nunes.

Headliners Islam Makhachev and Bobby Green are not expected to miss a significant amount of time, with Makhachev not being listed with any injury and Green receiving a minimal suspension of no contest until March 29. Green accepted the fight on short-notice as a replacement for Beneil Dariush just two weeks after competing at UFC 271.

UFC Vegas 49 was overseen by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
