The Illinois State Athletic Commission has released the official list of medical suspensions stemming from last month’s UFC 90: “Silva vs. Cote” event, which took place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on October 25.

The event saw Anderson Silva retain his UFC middleweight title over Patrick Cote via third-round TKO after Cote tore his ACL in the late stages of their championship fight. Former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk and rising welterweight contender Thiago Alves were also victorious on the card.

Cote has been medically suspended for 45 days and will be unable to participate in contact training sessions for 30 days due to his knee injury. However the Quebec City native is expected to be out of action for at least six months following surgery to repair the injury.

Heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum, who was knocked out by newcomer Junior dos Santos on the main card, has been sidelined for two months while Drew McFedries, who was submitted by Thales Leites, has been given a mandatory one-month vacation.
