UFC heavyweight Junior dos Santos claims he’s ready to challenge champion Brock Lesnar for his title and it’s pretty tough to argue after the Brazilian posted his second consecutive first round TKO victory Sunday night at “UFC on Versus.”
“If you guys like to watch good knockouts, I’m here to give you good knockouts,” dos Santos emphatically stated after putting former top contender Gabriel Gonzaga to sleep at 3:53 in the opening stanza.
The Team Black House fighter stakes claim to a dominant 11-1 MMA record and has unleashed devastating finishes in all of his victories. The 25-year-old is currently riding a six-fight winning streak, with the last five coming inside the Octagon.
“Fight with the best,” dos Santos said when of about his immediate aspirations. “I think I’m ready. I’m ready for a title shot if the UFC wants. I’m ready.”
