"Well, on the first minute of fight I was going inside him and he punched me twice and it broke my jaw in two different places ... When I touched my teeth with my tongue I felt that everything was out of place and I had swallowed a lot of blood ... The truth is that, after he broke my jaw, I felt it like if it was a series tiny electric shock on my head, it was very weird, and it got sensible too. Any punch or pressure on that area would make the shocks become harder and harder and I got dizzy and lose my strength. When he pressured me on the grid I couldn't handle it. Joe Silva said I'll come back. I think everyone could see I was better in the fight. If I hadn't broken my jaw, I would have won that fight."
UFC lightweight submission specialist Rafael dos Anjos will have six months on the sidelines to think about his loss to Clay Guida t UFC 117: "Silva vs. Sonnen" earlier this month in Oakland. "The Carpenter" forced the wily Brazilian to call it quits after shattering his jaw in the first round. Dos Anjos contends it was his fight until the unfortunate injury. Anyone out there agree with his assessment?
