Dos Santos gets a chance to be champion again at UFC 166...
Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos appeared on UFC Tonight this week to discuss his upcoming title fight with Cain Velasquez at UFC 166. Below are some highlights and a video from the segment:
Dos Santos on what will be different about the third fight: "I think we showed a little of ourselves in each fight. In the first fight, I knocked him out, which is something I did a lot before. The second fight showed how he fights. Now we've learned more about each other and it'll be great for the fans."
Dos Santos on how the loss to Velasquez affected him: "It affected me a lot. It was not good. Nobody likes to lose. I learned a lot. I'm smarter now and I have a lot more experience and I'm going to use that."
Dos Santos on if he plans on using any new tricks like the spinning wheel kick in his last fight: "Yeah, expect something different this time. I never felt comfortable enough to use those against wrestlers. You have to use all our weapons to win a fight and I'm going to do that."
