Junior dos Santos plans to knockout Brock Lesnar at UFC 131Posted on March 31, 2011, 11:04 PM by Joey Santosus
Top Heavyweight contender, Junior dos Santos, discusses his experience as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter 13, as well as his upcoming match-up with Brock Lesnar. Dos Santos says he is happy to be a part of the show and looks forward to proving he is the division's top contender when he meets Lesnar at UFC 131.
Dos Santos was initially granted a title shot following his unanimous decision victory over Roy Nelson at UFC 117. However, after learning that the Heavyweight Champion, Cain Velasquez, would be sidelined for much of the year with a torn rotator cuff, the Brazilian opted to risk his position as top contender by taking a coaching position opposite Brock Lesnar on TUF 13. Dos Santos and Lesnar will go head to head at UFC 131 in June, and if victorious, "Cigano" will get his long awaited crack at the Heavyweight title.
