Heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos (Pictured) will be sitting front and center when Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem battle it out tonight at UFC 141. Although he’ll be keeping a watchful eye on the shootout, one thing’s for certain, dos Santos couldn’t care less who his first title defense will come against.
After knocking Cain Velasquez out last month to capture the crown, the Brazilian begrudgingly was forced to predict his next opponent and he went with Lesnar. As the clock ticks away towards Friday night’s scrap, he told us that he’s sticking with his initial prediction.
Outside of undergoing knee surgery after beating Velasquez, many other things have changed in his life since becoming the most popular kid on campus.
The heavyweight touches on a multitude of topics with us, including the need to remain humble despite his newfound fame, the reception he received when returning to Brazil with the belt and his expected return date.
