Junior Dos Santos elaborates on the personal problems that left him off his game during his second fight with Cain Velasquez:

After losing the heavyweight belt to Cain Velasquez at UFC 155, Junior dos Santos claimed that personal problems hindered him because he was physically well. The fact is that in interview on Huck’s Cauldron, the Santa Catarina revealed that split from Vilsana Piccozi, with whom he was married for ten years.

“She is the most important person in my life and is the person who cares for me and I want to take care of her forever. But I do not love her any more as a woman,” said the athlete on the program’s website.

The heavyweight, who lives in Salvador, Bahia, met his ex-wife at a time when he worked as a waiter and had never even thought of becoming a MMA fighter.
