JDS Doesn’t Need Surgery& Will Likely Recover Quickly

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos was expected to return to action against Stipe Miocic at the TUF Brazil 3 Finale but JDS was forced to withdraw from the main event due to a broken hand.

According to a report on UFC Tonight, the Brazilian fighter will not need surgery and instead was given orders to go lightly for four-weeks. UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani said this on the matter:

“JDS is out of his fight with Stipe Miocic. He broke his left hand last Thursday. He had an MRI done and was hoping to still fight. They told him to monitor it to see if the swelling goes down. It didn’t. He was told to immobilize his hand for four weeks to heal. He doesn’t need surgery and he hopes to return sooner than later.”
