Dos Santos: "Christmas is postponed until after fight"


While the majority of people on earth have been focused on Christmas, UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos is focused on the upcoming clash with number one contender and former champion Cain Velasquez at UFC 155, on Dec 29.

“I will spend Christmas focused. I has already happened before and I’ve previously fought on holiday periods. Its no problem. This is the moment to keep the focus and really think of how this fight will go. The preparation has been ongoing very well and I will get well prepared in the day of the fight,” he told UOL’s NaGradedoMMA.

“Honestly I will be traveling in Christmas. I will get there and this is going to be a normal fight week. My Christmas will be afterwards. When I win the bout, I will celebrate the title, Christmas and New Year.”

Junior, who uses to train in Salvador at Academy Champion, made the first part of the camp in São Paulo at Corinthians gym and he is considering a full-time move there in order to look for a better structure.

“I’m used to train in Salvador but the work and reception in Corinthians was incredible. The academy is very well structured. It might be possible that I stay there full-time next time. It will depend on my team, what they decide, I will do. I like Salvador and have my house there, but if I need to stay some months in São Paulo, I will do it.” he explains.
