Although he is no longer a part of UFC, Junior dos Santos is still fighting for a win in the organization.
The Brazilian veteran lost to Cyril Gane his last bout in December, but is appealing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to get the final result changed. Dos Santos lost with a TKO in the second round, but his team is saying that the Frenchman’s finishing blow landed to the back of Dos Santos’ head and that is an illegal strike.

“It is our position that Mr. Gane acted without malice but, like many fighters, without a clear understanding of what the rule prohibits. We believe the illegal blow landed exactly where it was intended by Mr. Gane, and should have disqualified him immediately.”, Dos Santos’ agent Ana Guedes wrote in the appeal document.
