Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos has been involved in his fair share of brutal battles over the years.
And the Brazilian has now had to undergo a double surgery to heal the wounds of his last few fights. The former champion, who defeated fellow Heavyweight Stipe Miocic in December via a unanimous decision result, needed surgery on his nose and knee following the brutal 25 minute battle inside the Octagon.
Posting a photo of him on the popular photo sharing platform Instagram following the surgery, Junior let his fans know that his surgeries have been successful and he will now begin his rehabilitation process.
Writing on Instagram, Junior dos Santos said that there are some people for whom a simple thank you not be sufficient enough as a sign of gratitude, but he added that he would still like to extend his thanks to Moises Cohen, his doctor and his crew who have been taking great care of him once again as well as to doctor Sergio Miranda, who performed the surgery on his nose and his crew and his daughter Maria Vitoria.
Junior dos Santos was on the verge of defeat by Stipe Miocic but it was not all over for Junior dos Santos. In fact he was closer to yet another win. He was in a clear state of mind as he wanted to win the championship. He did defeat Miocic by a clear majority and a decision which was hailed by all. Judged by five people the decision was final.
Miocic was in complete mood as he tried to defeat dos Santos and it really got gruesome as blood was shed by him. Santos came back strongly and he believes that to come back strongly is a matter of pride as it is difficult to perform well under pressure.
