- After losing to Cain Velasquez at UFC 166 and being knocked out in the process, JDS is looking to get back in the cage. Junior dos Santos coach said the following:
“He took some time off and is now back to training,” dos Santos’ “We’re thinking about a fight around May or June, but there’s nothing set yet.”
“The UFC has great athletes, the best, but a fight that we wanted to see is against Overeem,” he said. “It was expected to happen before and didn’t. But they have great fighters in the UFC, so anything can happen. He will fight anyone they want.”
“We shouldn’t think about the title now, we need to work hard and win fights,” Dorea said. “To get there, we need to beat other fighters first. It may take a year, maybe more or maybe less, but the title is the consequence of our wins.”
Dos Sanos is 16–3 in his overall MMA career. It should be noted that he has lost his last 2-3 fights against Cain Velasquez.
