Seven fighters from the Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva event have received medical suspensions following Saturday, and one of them could be out indefinitely.

The Arizona Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Commission—the body regulating the event held at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Ariz.—provided its list on Monday, which saw Eliezer Silva suspended for an undetermined length of time after his second-round KO of Anthony Hannah on the preliminary portion of the event. A reason for the suspension was not given, so it is unknown why Silva could be out of action for such a lengthy stretch. His opponent, Hannah, was suspended for 30 days.

Headliners Paul and Silva are free to compete, as neither received a medical suspension. The ‘Problem Child’ defeated the ‘Spider’ by unanimous decision after eight rounds, his sixth consecutive win in the boxing ring.
