According to @junior_cigano representative, no injuries. He’s apparently joking around and talking about another fight. Says he’s in no pain.

Cain Velasquez thoroughly dominated Junior dos Santos at UFC 155 in Las Vegas on Saturday to regain the UFC heavyweight championship in a unanimous decision, but he apparently inflicted less pain on his opponent than initially believed.

Velasquez rocked JDS early in the fight and pretty much cruised thereafter. Many people felt like Cain could have attempted to finish dos Santos, but Velasquez was content to continue administering punishment while wearing out the Brazilian.

FOX Sports’ A.J. Perez says dos Santos was discharged from the hospital without any injuries.
