JDS: I’ll take Hunt down and tap him if I have to

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos appeared recently on MMAJunkie Radio, and said he has grown as a fighter.

“I was trying to fight standing all the time,” said dos Santos. “But it’s MMA and you have to use Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. So now, it’s more clear to me. I have to use all my skills to win the fights, especially when you’re fighting against someone like Cain Velasquez.”

JDS fights Mark Hunt at UFC 160 on May 25, 2013, and is planning a multi-dimensional attack.

“You have to get prepared to fight anywhere,” said dos Santos. “I’m training a lot in my jiu-jitsu skills, and I think I’m getting more confident in that area. If I feel I have to take him down, I will do that, and I will be looking to submit him.”
