He says he's at 100% now though…
Former UFC heavyweight champion and UFC 166 headliner, Junior dos Santos, spoke with reporters this week about a facial cut he sustained in training for his upcoming title fight with Cain Velasquez. Fortunately, the cut was not serious enough to take dos Santos out of the fight.
JDS stated, "It was in the training (camp), and it was accidental. But I'm OK already…I'm 100 percent already."
The cut reportedly occurred about three weeks ago according to JDS. It required three stitches and they've already been removed with no issue.
UFC 166 is set for Saturday, October 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
