Daniel Cormier successfully defended his UFC light heavyweight championship in a rematch with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson on Saturday in New York.

Cormier again submitted Johnson in the UFC 210 main event, cementing his position as the 205-pound champion. Neither fighter emerged unscathed, however.

The New York State Athletic Commission issued both men more than the mandatory 7-day rest period when the medical suspensions were issued to MMAWeekly.com. Cormier was handed a 45-day suspension, pending athletic commission clearance, while Johnson was issued a 30-day suspension.

While several fighters were issued 30 or 45-day suspensions, none of the UFC 210 combatants received any lengthier time on the sidelines. The commission does not reveal details on the fighters’ condition or specific reasons for the suspensions.

Johnson retired in the Octagon following the loss to Cormier.

UFC 210: Cormier vs. Johnson 2 took place on Saturday, April 8, at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y.
