**NEW** JDS Interview

Junior dos Santos
Monday 22nd of March 2010 05:14 PM By Guilherme Cruz
Last night, Junior “Cigano” dos Santos needed less than four minutes to put Gabriel Gonzaga down and get his fifth knockout victory in the UFC at UFC on Versus first edition. After the impressive performance, the young heavyweight prospect spoke with TATAME.com about the fight, his future and more:

Strategy to face Gonzaga:

“We expected something like happened in the fight. I felt he wanted to take me down, that he’d use his striking to try to do it, so I was ready or that. I was already waiting for his kicks, which are very heavy, and then he’d try the takedown. He took me down, but I got up quickly and started to answer that. After the third minute, professor (Luis Carlos) Dorea told me to push the pace and answer his punches”

Gonzaga’s kicks:

“He kicks hard, his kicks are very good, but I didn’t felt any of them to connect well”

Dana White:

“Thanks God Dana White likes me. He was very happy with my victory, he came to me and said that, he said he was very happy with the way the fight went”

Cain Velasquez:

“The UFC didn’t say anything yet and I don’t know who I’m gonna fight. I’d like to fight against Velasquez. He’s a tough guy, but the UFC has other great names too. I just wanna fight against the best and with the best, that’s what I’m waiting from the UFC now. He’s a very complete guy. His wrestling is superior than mine, but I think I can surprise him on striking. I’d train a lot of ground game or this fight too, it could make some diference”


“It’s not about revenge, I’m cool with that, so does Rodrigo (Nogueira). I’d fight Cain for who he is, an undefeated fighter, a great fighter inside the UFC. I’d like to face him because of that. This revenge thing, I think Rodrigo can get that”

Who’s the best:

“Normally, the best is who has the belt. We have to follow this line, even not agreeing with that, inside the UFC the best is who has the belt. We’ll continue our job to fight against the guy who owns the belt”

Title shot:

“I think I’m ready for a title shot. I’m sure that Rodrigo will be back, but I think I’m in a great moment and I wanna enjoy it. Rodrigo and I talk a lot about that and he supports me in this decision”
interesting on the whole revenge thing
