Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping’s bench time is doubled in the wake of his second stoppage loss.

Bisping (30-9 MMA, 20-9 UFC) is suspended 60 days with 45 days of no contact during training after a first-round knockout loss courtesy of Kelvin Gastelum (14-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 122, according to medical suspensions released to official MMA records keeper mixedmartialarts.com.

UFC Fight Night 122 took place this past Saturday, Nov. 25, at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. The entire card streamed on UFC Fight Pass.

Bisping, 38, received a 30-day suspension after being choked unconscious at UFC 217 – just three weeks before the Gastelum fight – by Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC), who claimed the UFC middleweight title after a four-year layoff. But Bisping reportedly received doctor’s permission to compete, despite being badly rocked by a punch prior to being submitted. The UFC, which independently regulated this past Saturday’s event, also cleared him for the fight.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan recently criticized the decision to allow Bisping to fight.

All UFC Fight Night 122 fighters were given a mandatory seven-day suspension, but four fighters received potential six-month terms.

The full list of medical suspensions from UFC Fight Night 122 include:

  • Kelvin Gastelum: suspended 7 days
  • Michael Bisping: suspended 60 days due to KO and 45 days no contact
