Junior Dos Santos says he's ready for UFC 155, Overeem picks VelasquezPosted on October 27, 2012, 05:28 PM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Heavyweight champion, Junior "Cigano" dos Santos will return to the Octagon on December 29th, facing Cain Velasquez in the main event of UFC 155 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Speaking on MMALive, JDS shared his thoughts about the upcoming scrap with Cain Velasquez, and the previous encounter between the two.
Cigano also discussed his possible encounter with "The Demolition Man" Alistair Overeem, who will finish his suspension in late December. Once again, dos Santos made it clear that he's not a fan of Overeem, but will be more than ready to step inside the cage against the Dutchman:
"Actually, Dana White, the President of the UFC, already said the winner from me and Cain Velasquez is going to fight Alistair Overeem. I don't think he deserves to be fighting for the title because he failed the drug test. But I want to fight this guy because he said a lot of things and I want to fight with the best. If he thinks he's one of them, I want to fight him."
Overeem himself, thinks Cain Velasquez will do well against Junior dos Santos to get his title back. More than that, Overeem hinted that he would choose to wait for the winner of JDS vs. Velasquez, instead of getting himself back inside the cage against another top contender, such as Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, who recently labeled the multi-time combat sports champion as a "fighter created in laboratory".
