Photo of the Day: Junior Dos Santos and Tim Boetsch Grin Through the Agony

(Props: CagedInsider on Facebook)

Junior Dos Santos‘s five-round thrashing at the hands of Cain Velasquez last night resulted in photographs both horrific and comically horrific. But as the above photo proves, Junior walked away from his beating with his faculties somewhat intact, and was healthy enough to fist-pose afterwards with middleweight Tim Boetsch, who gave Cigano a run for his money in the “most gruesomely misshapen fighter of the night” category. Throw a slashed-up Joe Lauzon in there, and you’d have the most depressing/inspiring MMA photo of the year. It hurts to look at these guys so soon after suffering through unimaginable physical agony, but it’s hard not to give it up for you-know-what.

@CASA - I think AH summed it up. I'd add that JDS was rocked very early, with subsequent punishment at timely intervals coming his way during the entire fight. He was manhandled, never experienced that, and now knows what it feels like to be the bitch.

@Casa: I think JR. came in with a serious case of overconfidence. He honestly didnt believe Cain was a threat to him and after he got roughed up for a few minutes, he just couldnt grasp that it was happening. Dont get me wrong, his training and will carried him through the rest of the fight but mentally, he was pretty much done in the first. Cain breaks people and thats what he did here, to a guy who didnt think he could be broken.

So next is overeem vs cain...I can dig that. Dang, JDS was my guy too...

So, not having watched the fight yet...did Junior have an adrenaline dump or something? No way he would gas in the 1st. Did he pull a cerrone/diaz, where cerrone came out blazing for 5 seconds, then stood there the rest of the fight?

Phew! His good ear made it out unharmed.

@ MorningwoodII - It's his tattoo that looses him more fans, than earns them. Your right there is a subtle difference most don't catch between the meaning of "pride and power." This agreed on, the bigger question is WHY did he feel that tattoo was something he needed. My guess is that he was at one time belittle or degraded by others of another race, he lacked ego and esteem, and he either wanted to impress his peers in some way. It's weak sauce no matter why. He would have better off getting an American Flag, as that would truly convey a nationalist ideology to others. Being that failed with his selection of ink, he is just a clown who wears a belt on a temporary basis to many, and a cultural idol to the the browns, specifically Latinos. I used Latino since its not politically correct to call em Beaners.

Why is JDS's wife taking a picture with Boetsch?

I was at BW3's watching the fights and the guy at the next able said. What if I got a tattoo that said "White Power." People would think I'm racist. His buddy said "White Power" is a bit different then Brown Pride. The first guy seemed stumped for a second and then continued eating wings.

Holy... JDS got beaten into Thiago Alves!
Casa de los pantelones- December 31, 2012 at 2:17 pm
No, he got beaten into George Foreman

The shame is that Joe Lauzon's not in the same picture! Anyone around here any good with Photoshop, I thought that was a CP specialty?

I don't know what was sadder - seeing JDS take such an ass-whooping while looking so out of the fight or watching the crowd boo him post-fight. The JDS/Cain and the Beatch fights were like mini-atrocities for me. Both JDS and Beatch seemed like different fighters when all was said and done.
XENOPHON- December 30, 2012 at 4:41 pm
I didn't bet on the fights, (someone on this List still owes me a buck over Diaz victory over Cerrone - GRIN) and only returned to CP to find that guy that owes me a buck!

Mac the Shack - If I had bet, I would have been like Drano (aka. The Biggest Loser" and lost money on the very same 2 fights you mentioned above.

I really wanted Junior to whip that racist bastards ass. But I guess it would not be…
