Dos Santos won't wait for Velasquez

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com
 

MMAWeekly.com was able to speak with Dos Santos’ manager, Ed Soares, on Wednesday as well. According to him, the top contender in the heavyweight division will not be waiting for Velasquez to return before fighting again.

“He is not going to wait six months,” Soares said in a text message to MMAWeekly.com.

Dos Santos last fought in August when he defeated Roy Nelson by unanimous decision at UFC 117 in Oakland. The Brazilian would end up sitting out almost a year between fights if he waits for Velasquez to return, so it appears for now he will be looking for another fight in 2011 before he challenges the champion.

Hopefully he fights in Toronto would be sick to watch that guy perform along with Gsp-Shields

This sucks, jds deserved that shot. And the problem is, who the fuck is #3 hw? Cains clearly top dog, jds second. And then? Lesnar? Who by all reports doesn't want o fight anymore? Carwin can't have leapfrogged lesnar since losing his title shot against him. And then who else is there? Schaub is not a top heavyweight and I like Struve but he's had his ass handed too him whenever he's fought real quality opposition. Anyone?

Agreed. The funniest part about Rashad was him complaining about not making money while waiting.

 ?  If JDS could wait he probably would.  He just can't afford it.  Rashad can.  And when Rampage went to film A-Team instead of waiting Rashad took the fight with Thiago.  Last time he waited a long time for an opponent he almost killed Chuck.
