JDS has little recall of fight, thought he lost in the 2nd

 

Junior Dos Santos had an interview with Combate, an arm of Brazilian media giant OGlobo, and discussed his state following the loss to UFC heavyweight champion Saturday night at UFC 166.

After letting his chance to regain the heavyweight belt slip away, the Brazilian had to be referred to a hospital in Houston, USA, due to the harsh punishment meted out by the American during the five rounds of the fight. According to his camp, dos Santos did not remember much of the fight , and thought he had been knocked out in the second round, when in reality the TKO came in the fifth round. The fighter also did not remember having talked with host Joe Rogan after the fight, and accoring to his coner, did much of the fight on auto pilot.

"I'm feeling good," dos Santos told Combat. "The pain is only in the heart, for failing to have a good performance in the Octagon. Now the order of business is to go back to the gym and train harder, dedicate myself to come back stronger than ever, and perhaps one day return to fight for the belt and, God willing, be able to honor the support of all who believe in me."

According to his camp, dos Santos was initially treated at the Toyota Center by a physician retained by theTexas  Athletic Commission, who asked that he be taken to the hospital for a CT scan of his head. The goal would be to check if there was any serious damage in the region, such as a fracture, or craniofacial or intracranial bleeding, which were not detected.

Despite being some swelling of his face, the fighter was in good spirits, joking with nurses and doctors at the hospital, and was released later in the early hours of Sunday morning. He received stitches in the right eye and left ear.

Good point, I forgot all about that.But that's a big brother watching his little brother take a hiding, it's a little different than a team you pay and have made promise not to stop the fight, at any cost.

Agreed. when/if he was mumbling to the doctor incoherently that should have sealed the deal. right there. rather see JDS back sooner doing what he does best than him return far from now possibly a shell of himself and possibly more susceptible to being knocked out due to all the damage.Remember chucks legendary chin? next thing you know he is getting KO'd left and right. there are countless guys like that. hell remember Cabbage? guy had a head like a cinder block and would take massive damage till finally he started dropping from single shots.

Dude, he got hit in the head hard enough and repeatedly enough in the same fight to think that the fight was over 3 rounds early. It is obviously a failure on the part of the corber to recognize that JDS was taking too much.

NO, NO, NO, It was the 2nd fight with Tanner for the Belt. Franklin got flash dropped and ended up winning it and was excited and happy and was asking what round was it "I don't remember, I thought it was the 2nd round" when it was the 4th round.The 2nd fight was much harder fight for Franklin and Tanner gave ans well as he got but Franklin pulled through and got the W via TKO in the 4th round.But this is what the OP was talkng about Rich thinking it was a totally different round.Sadly I really think a lot of the Brawlers are going to have a lot of damage when they reach their 40's and early 50's.If you think Ali has it bad by Parkinson's syndrome brought on by Head Trauma (in boxing with huge assthen just imagine being hit with these little ass gloves over and over again.It won't be a pretty sight, I'll tell you that, after working with numerous patients in Physical Therapy.I'm the Rehabilitation Director - Physical Therapist for a 4 county area based out of Duke medical Center here in Nroth Carolina.

Yo brah, chronic traumatic encephalitis is for fags. JDS'll just take some creatine and nut up, and if he gets the shakes or gets severe depression, well what's the worst that can happen?It's not like JDS has a retarded kid he's takin' care of
