Guys, Junior Dos Santos Is Still Alive and Still Nice
There was a time when Junior dos Santos was the champ, or hovering at the top of the heavyweight division. But though those times are gone, he's still nice.
In case you missed it, former champ Junior dos Santos took on heavyweight head-smasher Francis Ngannou at UFC on ESPN 3 last night, and, well, Dos Santos got his head smashed.
The entire fight lasted a little more than a minute, and it was clear that Ngannou very likely snatched away probably a year’s worth of memories and cognitive ability from the poor Brazilian’s brain.
But fear not! Because not only is Dos Santos still alive, but he’s also still nice!

Guys, first of all I want to thank everybody for your support. I’m sorry the show was short this time, and without a great result for us. I’ve been on top of this sport and weight class for over a decade, and I plan to be here for a long time still. I love fighting, I love my life, and I’m really grateful for every opportunity I have to grow and evolve. The climb is tough and long, as you all know and sometimes—like tonight—months of perfect preparation and strategy are overshadowed by a millisecond’s mistake. There isn’t much to say now other than to congratulate Francis Ngannou for capitalizing so effectively on my mistake.
