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.

Yeah, I remember Dana saying that months ago. To be honest - I'm not trying to be a dick, but I had trouble understanding what JDS was saying in that quote. It was either a difficult translation, or perhaps funny wording.

What makes you say that? Everything he says about Overeem ends with "oh well, I can beat anyone and will fight whoever they tell me to" or some variation.
I think a lot is lost in translation in jds interviews. Phone Post

JDS will knock reems head clean off and he knows it so why wouldn't he want the fight? Phone Post

Overoids is probably the single safest fight available to JDS. Overoids hasn't been able to strike with even mid-level strikers in MMA, he's going to have nothing to offer when he faces the best. Cain is much more dangerous. Roy Nelson is much more dangerous.

Overeem, all bulked up, would be WAY too slow for JDS...


Im a fan of both but Id like to see Overeem lose abit of his muscle, and Id say he will with the suspension.

Isn't the suspension just free time to spend in the gym juicing?

I'd prefer to see Overeem get a fight under his belt before he fights JDS.

As I said, Overeem was outstruck by Werdum. Werdum is more praised for his K-1 pedigree rather than his skills shown in his MMA matches.

JDS has been picking up apart top heavy weight strikers, such as Carwin and Velasquez.

This is a safe fight for JDS and a fight that he would win decisively again.

Cain is much more dangerous.

I wasn't ever banned doofus. I don't think the UG bans people just because the truth makes your vagina hurt.

I just feel that Overeem is the #1 HW and will beat JDS by striking... grappling... whatever he wants. May not happen but thats how I see it. I also picture Cain pulling off an upset too though. Maybe I just secretly have something against JDS, I dunno. Phone Post

Werdum praised for his k-1 pedigree is reality????????? Phone Post

You really need to have it explained to you what he meant? Is it really that hard for you to spot? He meant Overoids, not Werdum. Obvious.

And he's completely correct. Nobody will even try to argue with what he said.

You say this right after implying that JDS is scared of Reem...the ironing.

 

You talk shit about fighters just as much as stonepony.
