Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos speaking from the hospital told Brazilian media giant OGlobo that says he used the wrong strategy against once and now current UFC champ Cain Velasquez at UFC 155 and wants a rubber match.
“He was better and deserved the win," said JDS. "But I used the wrong strategy. I was too worried about his takedowns and didn’t protect my face, so he hit me. When the fight was on the ground, I should have used my jiu-jitsu more – I trained it so much. But I just tried to get back up and it didn’t help me. But on the ground he is very good, very strong. I didn’t really connect with any good punches. It was disappointing, because I was feeling good, had an awesome training camp, everything was right. But that’s how fighting is … I want (a rubbermatch) now, soon. I won the first one and he got a rematch. Now I lost and I want my rematch. I’m saying I want this fight. I’ll get my belt back.”
