In this fight, Santos had a torn ACL, MCL and PCL  on his left leg and according to the doctors, he may have also injured his right leg which underwent a surgical process a few months back.

“The first round wasn’t anything Jon Jones did to me,” Santos told reporters. “I felt the knee go out and it really bothered my fight. Everyone saw I did everything I could fighting on a bum knee and I fought the whole fight like that.”

“I managed to hurt him, I managed to kick him a lot, but our plan was to process when we started our attacks but we couldn’t really do that with the way my knee was,” he said. “I wasn’t really managing to get my hands and put my strikes the way I wanted to.”

Suffering from a serious injury the Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended Santos for a period of six months.
