Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson highlighted a list of six fighters who received extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of Bellator 172, according to information released Monday to MMA Fighting by the California State Athletic Commission.

Thomson suffered a second-round knockout loss to Bellator veteran Patricky Freire in the night’s main event, which took place Feb. 18 at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and aired live on Spike TV.

As a result, Thomson will be forced to seek doctor’s clearance on potential injuries sustained during the bout or sit out 180 days, per commission orders.

The five other fighters who received similar suspensions were: Brooke Mayo, James Terry, Cesar Gonzalez, Anthony Do, and Abraham Vaesau.
