Dos Santos no longer interested in Overeem fight

Dos Santos no longer interested in Overeem fight
June 26th 2013

Junior Dos Santos is no longer interested in fighting Alistair Overeem.

The two were supposed to meet at UFC 126 but the former K-1, DREAM and Strikeforce champion was caught in an antidoping test carried out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and was removed from the event.

Since then, Cigano made comments to the effect that he would rather not fight “an opponent made in a laboratory,” with Overeem responding by saying Dos Santos was “afraid” of facing him in the Octagon.

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.”

    Junior Dos Santos is a weak gay ass little dude to say things like this.
