Tonight’s Eagle FC 47 event was headlined by a heavyweight contest featuring Junior dos Santos taking on Yorgan de Castro.
Junior dos Santos (21-10 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since December of 2020, where he suffered a TKO loss to Ciryl Gane. That setback marked the former UFC heavyweight champions fourth in a row and resulted in his release from the promotion. ‘JDS’ initially signed on to fight for Triller, but ultimately wound up returning with Eagle FC.
Meanwhile, Yorgan De Castro (9-3 MMA) was looking to earn his third win a row after being released from the UFC in 2021. The big man had lasted competed at Eagle FC 44, where he submitted Shuan Asher.
Tonight’s Eagle FC 47 event proved to be an entertaining affair for as long as it lasted. Both men were able to land big punches in the opening two rounds and it seemed to be a very close contest heading into the third.
However, in the early moments of round three Junior dos Santos threw a right hand that caused his shoulder to pop out of its socket. The bout was waved off due to injury as ‘JDS’ yelled in agony and frustration.
