"Man, I spent a whole week meeting him every day," dos Santos said. "At first there were some heat in the staredowns, but that was it. Imagine a whole week, more than once a day? We went to a TV show and started laughing, then we couldn’t stare each other without laughing. I couldn’t look to his eyes anymore."
The possibility of former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier dropping to the 205-pound division in the future was one of the topics of the conversation, but "Cigano" believes it will never happen.
"He’s not (dropping to 205 pounds)," dos Santos said. "And you know why? Because I will defeat Cain, and he will want to fight me."
"Cigano" spent the whole lunch sitting side by side with his ex-wife Vilsana Picolli, who remains as one of his managers. But that didn’t stop the fighter from praising TUF 18 coaches Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, who attended some of the media events with him during the tour.
"I was impressed on how Miesha is gorgeous," dos Santos praised. "Not that Ronda isn’t beautiful, but let’s say she’s more ‘regular’. She’s cute. But Miesha is really gorgeous. Have you seen here already? On TV, I thought she was normal, but when I met her… My God!"
