JDS: 'Reem deserves a beating not a title shot

by Guilherme Cruz | source: tatame.com

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."

If by 'pissed off' you mean 'juiced up' I'm inclined to agree with you.

That's irrelevant and illogical.Reem's MMA win streak is nearly as long as JDS's career. Furthermore, Reem has only went to decision once during that time.

Reem has no place in MMA.

Perhaps so, but what makes you think JDS can withstand the Hulk punches from Overeem?You make a silly argument, since any Heavyweight can KO another HW at any time.

Oh JDS give us a break. Overeem deserves a shot at the title more so than Brown Pride, after all only one of them has been undefeated the past several years. Besides you will get a Overeem who hasn't fought in a good while.Okay I get it, Brown Pride was easy pickings last time, so there is no reason to think you won't TKO him again.

JDS hit Roy in the jaw and Rot kept moving forward like it didn't faze him?? WTF??Roy staggered across the ring and fell on his ass homer Simpson style like he got hit by a truck! He survived but that's all he did - junior backed off so he wouldn't break his hands.
