Cigano does not fully remember the details of his title fight due to the prolonged beatdown that he suffered from Cain Velasquez

Former heavyweight champion was reported to suffer a mild amnesia after the brutal TKO loss to in their trilogy last Saturday.

JDS’ camp revealed in (viafightersonly) that the former champ does not remember some of the parts from his previous title fight. Cigano, who was stopped in the final round, believes that he was knocked out in the just the second round. They also added that the former champ has no recollection of his interview right after the bout. Furthermore, Team Cigano thinks that their fighter was in “auto pilot mode” midway in the second round until the referee stoppage in the fifth.

Despite that, the tough Brazilian says that emotional pain is much worse than the beating that he received in his recent bout.

“I’m feeling good. I came to the hospital to have some stitches in the cut I had. The pain is only in the heart, because I didn’t manage to give a good performance in the Octagon. Now it’s time to go back to the gym and train, dedicate myself to come back stronger than ever and, who knows, some day dispute the championship again and be able to honor the support from everybody who believed in me.”

According to the report, Cigano was immediately taken to the hospital where he undergo brain scans to check for possible internal bleeding. Fortunately for Junior, the scan returned negative results. He was released a day after but he refused to be photographed.
