Not only that, people are really overlooking Dos Santos because they've simply never heard of him.
If you look at the guy and his credentials, not only is he in great shape and very large, hes the Brazilian Muay Thai Heavyweight champion with an 18-0 record, a BJJ black belt, and trains with the Noguiera's and Silva at black house.
Werdum is one of my favourite heavyweights, but Dos Santos is being seriously overlooked and has the best chance on the entire card for the upset.
I had Werdum by submission, but I've changed to Dos Santos by UD, should be a very interesting fight.

I think Griffin was a bad idea for Sherk coming back from a loss to BJ
Really? It's pretty obvious to me at least that he's the underdog cause he's fighting the former LW Champ whose only losses have come to 3 of the best WW ever (GSP/Hughes/BJ), with way more experience. There's no doubt Tyson is skilled, and he'll give Sherk a tough fight but when you compare their credentials it is really quite clear why he is the underdog in this fight.
