Doctor Doesn’t Know How Thiago Santos Fought Jon Jones For 25 Minutes: “I Don’t Have A Scientific Explanation For That!”

Thiago Santos is a miracle! The dangerous Brazilian striker impressed many UFC fans when he battled Jon Jones until the end and lost the title fight via close split decision despite an insane amount of damage he suffered.

Before the bout with the undisputed champ, Thiago had surgery on his right knee. But the Brazilian was landing brutal leg kicks at will, firing hard punches towards Jones’ face, and even won some rounds.

Early in the fight, “Marreta” suffered a nasty knee injury. He ended the match with few torn ligaments too. Thiago Santos earned huge respect of the MMA community.

But according to Greg Rosenstein from ESPN, the challenger finished the title bout with TWO INJURED KNEES. Look at the status below.

When Santos’ doctor was asked to explain how Thiago Santos fought the 205-pound division king for five rounds with such injuries, he was unable to provide a scientific explanation!

“This is not normal. This was his mind. I don’t have a scientific explanation for that.”

The doctor can’t explain how Thiago Santos battled the most dominant 205-pounder ever until the end to give him one of the closest bouts of his career. But maybe you can come up with some ideas. Please share your thoughts! Is “Marreta” the toughest Octagon warrior in the history of this wonderful sport?
