JDS planning to target Lesnar's 'weak chin'

by Ben Fowlkes | source: mmafighting.com

As dos Santos told Ariel Helwani on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour, success in this fight will depend on his ability to defend against Lesnar's takedowns and target the former champ's suspect chin.

"He's a wrestler, so he feels uncomfortable when people throw punches on him," dos Santos told Helwani. "I think his fight against Cain Velasquez shows good things for me, because I think he's got a weak chin. I will try to use that, try to throw some punches and...try to use my boxing."

"My wrestling is very good and I think it will be hard for him to put me down. I will be very prepared. I will be in shape. I have to be one hundred percent in that fight. If he tries to put me down – for sure, he will try – but I will get up and keep the fight [standing]. That's my way to win the fight. I'm looking for the knockout all the time."

Lesnar has a solid chin, he's just scared of getting hit and cowers uncontrollably when he eats a decent shot....and he's the single greatest heavyweight in the history of MMA according to Dana White (up until he was humiliated by Cain).

JDS takedown defense is crazy good. His cardio is questionable, so if Brock can fight his fight and get to rounds two and three, he will have a much better chance.

This. Brock's had his fair share of heavy strikers, he's just plain uncomfortable with getting hit in the face. That neck of his makes a hell of a cushion to fall back on

 Did you miss the part where he said "but I will get back up..." Lesnar is going to sleep after 3 failed takedowns.

Brock has the strongest chin in the division. He just reacts to being hit the way a normal person does, and thats flinch.
