Junior dos Santos: The fight with Alistair Overeem will be "good for the fans"Posted on January 2, 2012, 07:57 AM by Anton Gurevich
"Brock seemed a little bit anxious to throw punches and kicks. That surprised me, because I thought he should have taken Alistair down and kept the fight on the ground.
It's going to be really, really good for the fans. Because he's [Overeem] a striker and I'm a striker, it's going to be a stand-up battle. He's pretty good at using his kicks, his knees, his punches, but I believe so much in my boxing." - USAToday.com
UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos shared his thoughts about the upcoming fight with "The Demolition Man" Alistair Overeem. Cigano is currently recovering from a knee injury suffered just twelve days prior to the UFC on FOX encounter with Cain Velasquez, who was dethroned by dos Santos in just 64 seconds. Alistair Overeem has a statistical advantage over Junior dos Santos, finishing nearly 95% of his professional MMA bouts. However, dos Santos enjoys a higher KO/TKO ratio than "The Reem", flattening 72% of the opponents he faced inside the cage or ring.
