Cain Velasquez vs Junior dos Santos Phantom CamFormer UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos is doing fine four days removed from his technical knockout loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 166 on Oct. 19.

Velasquez nearly finished dos Santos in the third round and some, including UFC president Dana White, felt the fight should have been stopped then. The fight continued until the fifth round when referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the action after dos Santos didn’t properly defend himself.

Dos Santos was taken to the hospital following the loss. He was released the following morning after observation and receiving eleven stitches: seven above his left eye, three in his left ear, and one in his lip.

UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani reported that the former champion did suffer some memory loss from the punishment at the hands of Velasquez and that he doesn’t have recollection of much after the third round.

Dos Santos’ management team told Helwani that the memory loss is “nothing to be concerned about” and that there were no long-term damage done.

Dos Santos is back in Brazil and reportedly, “feeling good.”
