Junior dos Santos suffered 4 consecutive losses before he left the UFC in 2020. He signed with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Eagle FC and had his debut on May 20 . He fought fellow former UFC fighter Yorgan De Castro in the main event. Dos Santos was doing pretty well during the previous rounds. Unfortunately, the 38-year-old dislocated his shoulder just 35 seconds into the third round.
Dos Santos was delivering a heavy right blow and De Castro managed to block it. He somehow broke his own right shoulder. Dos Anjos wasn’t aware of it and De Castro was the one who pointed it out and told the referee.
Later on, dos Santos took to his Instagram account to provide an update of his condition.
“I already talked to my doctor, we’re gonna do some exams and figure out what’s gonna be the procedures to get this thing better as soon as possible. But before going to battle I’d like to share with you guys that I was feeling so happy. I was feeling very good during the fight, like I haven’t felt in a long, long time.” Dos Santos said.
As for Strickland – he previously took shots at the Prophet Muhammad, Pat Barry and Kayla Harrison.
