White: JDS begged me for Overeem fight

Thursday, October 25, 2012

In a story yesterday, Junior Dos Santos expressed his opinion that he felt Overeem was not deserving of a title shot, that it would be ‘out of order’. Also stating that he felt that the UFC was prioritizing fights that sell well rather than choosing those most deserving of a title fight.

Per the usual, UFC President Dana White was open in speaking on the situation, contradicting the thoughts of the current heavyweight champion. White posted this response on the Underground Forum today: 

just an fyi JDS begged me for the Reem fight said he respects Cain very much and thinks he deserves the shot but would like to KO Reem first cause he hates him. word for word what he said.
