Dos Santos went on to finish Lewis in round two, but the opening round featured a fascinating exchange. “Cigano” appeared to hurt Lewis badly with a spinning kick to the body, but as dos Santos approached, the feared slugger sprung up and just missed with a massive right.

After the memorable win, dos Santos relayed that his coach had, in fact, warned him to not rush in on an apparently wounded, Lewis. You can watch JDS reflect on that, and the rest of the bout below.
