    Default Dos Santos no longer interested in Overeem fight

    Dos Santos no longer interested in Overeem fight - Fighters Only

    Now Dos Santos says that he feels “avenged” by fellow Brazilian heavyweight Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva, who knocked Overeem out in the third round of their fight earlier this year. Dos Santos says he no longer has any desire to fight the Dutchman.

    “Bigfoot put him on his place. I no longer feel the wish to face him but I fight whomever the UFC puts in front of me. I will train aiming that guy and to be very well prepared to win,” Dos Santos told Terra.

    “The limited fighters, guys who don’t believe in themselves, who don’t dedicate to the training and don’t take it seriously are the ones who make it to call for attention. They do it to hype themselves.

    “It’s not that he [Overeem] is bad. He is an excellent fighter and he has great accomplishments in his career. You see [Chael] Sonnen making controversial statements as well but I’m not saying anything bad about him.

    “Have you see Sonnen? He is an excellent athlete… but he is better as a commentator.”

    ...and when AO whines about Dos Santos ducking, is anyone going to remember that he suddenly wasn't interested in facing Fedor once Werdum tapped Emelianenko?

    Nicely done....you're on fire today.

    I'm personally still interested in that fight. It would be nice to see if JDS could contend with someone who, in theory, is better at striking than he is (Hunt could have also been said to be better in theory but I'd contend that he has simply depended on his chin and massive power to bail him out over the years).

    JUST LIKE ALMOST EVERY OTHER #2 ranked guy in a division.

    Not to mention that AO holds a win over #3 very recently.

    Of course AO needs a win before JDS but the fight should still be of interest to JDS. Especially when he loses again.

    I to don't need all capital letters to get your point.

    I am use to brackets once you lose you fall into the losers bracket and work your way back up. So I don't see one fight as passing all of the other competition up. Just my opinion and understand and resect yours
    caps were unintentional if they bothered you then im calling "oops".
    A lot of people voiced displeasure in those decisions but thats the game now, and i can see where junior says " if other top guys are protecting their shots so am i".
    im indiferent, and frankly can't see AO having anything to offer JDS. AO might be a cranked up beast but he still has a soft coconut.

    simplejack, i think you're underrating mark hunt's stand up.

    he doesn't just rely on his power. he has great technique and fundamentals due to his years of k1 fighting.

    he keeps his hands high, turns his hips into his punches and kicks. his leg kicks are nasty when he actually uses them.

    dude had a great chin and power, but that alone hasn't gotten him as far as it has. mr. hunto is an elite striker hw.
