Junior Dos Santos Thought 5th Round TKO Happened During Round 2

Fighters Only reported the story from Combate stating the following:

“Junior Dos Santos does not remember most of the UFC 166 fight with Cain Velasquez, Afterwards he was under the impression he had been knocked out in the second round. His corner believe[s] he fought from round two onwards ‘on autopilot.’”
Later, at the hospital, Dos Santos reportedly said that he did not remember doing a post-fight interview with Joe Rogan. Despite these somewhat terrifying revelations, Dos Santos reported that he was feeling better.

JDS had this to say in a message released via Combate:

“I’m feeling good, I came to the hospital to have some stitches in the cut I had. The pain is only in the hear, because I didn’t manage to give a good performance in the Octagon… Now it’s time to go back to the gym and train, dedicate myself to come back stronger than ever and, who knows, some day dispute the championship again and be able to honor the support from everybody who believed in me.”
