Junior dos Santos Reportedly Doing Fine and “Feeling Good”

The UFC 166 main event between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos settled the trilogy between two of the best heavyweight fighters in the world, but it may also have put both of them out of action for quite some time.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation on Tuesday issued the medical suspensions for UFC 166: Velasquez vs. dos Santos III, which took place on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Toyota Center in Houston.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is suspended until April 18, 2014, unless he gains earlier clearance for a possible broken jaw. Junior dos Santos is out indefinitely, pending clearance by an ear, nose, and throat doctor for a possible nasal fracture.

Shawn Jordan and Tim Boetsch also received indefinite suspensions pending clearance by a doctor.

Every fighter on the card received at least a minimal precautionary suspension.
