On December 29, Junior Dos Santos will defend the world heavyweght championship for the second time, against Cain Velasquez. But he would rather be fighting Alistair Overeem, a fight that is off the cards until Overeem can be licensed in late December, following a positive test for PEDs.
“If UFC wanted me to fight Overeem I’d gladly shut him up because he’s been saying a lot of crap, he’s been learning from Chael Sonnen," said dos Santos in an exclusive interview with TATAME.
“I’m tired of these guys who think they’re so big, so strong, so bad and that people will get frightened by them because they look bad. There’s no such thing anymore. We’re athletes and the winner will be the one who trains the most. That’s what I have to say about it."
“I really told Dana White I’d love to fight Overeem. Beating Overeem, actually. That’s what’s going to happen when this bout actually happens. It would be a pleasure. From the way I see it, he didn’t deserve a title shot. Cain deserves it and that’s why we’re fighting. Overeem deserves to a beating and I’m going to arrange that."
