It's largely ceremonial, but Ronda Rousey won't be able to train for 45 days after a quick knockout at the hands of Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. The former champion was stopped in just 48 seconds, taking quite the beating in the process. But she apparently escaped the bout without major injury, which was not the case for at least four of the fighters on the card.

As noted earlier, John Lineker broke his jaw in the first round of his bout with T.J. Dillashaw. That earned him a six-month suspension (or until he his medically cleared by a doctor. Ray Borg (ankle), Niko Price (toe), and Alex Oliveira (nose) all suffered suspected broken bones as well and were handed the same suspension as Lineker.
