- Despite absorbing an inhuman amount of damage at the hands of Cain Velasquez during their UFC 166 heavyweight title fight, Junior dos Santos' manager Ana Claudia Guedes revealed via Twitter that the former champion is recovering well.
"Just letting everybody know Junior is doing fine," she posted. "Precautionary hospital check and some stitches."
Guedes added that dos Santos is feeling "physically good, definitely a little heartbroken."
Dos Santos lasted until the fifth round, when he succumbed to strikes from the champion.
- Daniel Cormier remains undefeated after picking up a unanimous decision win over Roy Nelson. With his teammate Cain Velasquez holding the top spot at heavyweight, Cormier intends to drop to light heavyweight to challenge champion Jon Jones. Cormier spoke about going after Jones' spot during the UFC 166 post-fight show.
"I'm always shooting for the top," he said. "I want to fight Jon Jones and I want to fight for the championship. But if it's not him, then I want to fight someone who will get me there. But Jon Jones is fighting Glover [Teixeira] next, and I didn't want to disrespect him."
Whether or not Cormier has a bout at 205lbs before facing Jones, it's hard to think he won't be "in the mix" with Teixeira and Alexander Gustafsson.
