Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez III is rapidly approaching (as UFC events tend to do), but what’s interesting is that there was almost a snag that kept this huge fight from happening, by the way of JDS getting cut in training a few weeks ago. We’ve all seen what can happen if a fighter suffers from a cut before a fight, hell, we saw EliteXC’s downfall get sparked by Ken Shamrock suffering a cut the day of the event. Cuts are serious business.
According to JDS, he suffered a nasty cut in training, but it has had enough time to heal and should not get in the way. Whew, right?
According to dos Santos, he suffered a cut three weeks ago which required stitches.
“It was in the training (camp), and it was accidental,” dos Santos admitted. “But not too [bad]. I’m okay already.”
