Junior dos Santos made his mark on the UFC with a crushing knockout of Fabricio Werdum back in 2008. Now, dos Santos holds the UFC heavyweight title, which he will put on the line at UFC 146 against No. 1 contender Alistair Overeem.
At UFC 90, Werdum was the known fighter, but “Cigano” had no problem making a statement at his expense. Dos Santos used his excellent boxing skills to keep Werdum at bay before landing the final blow in the first round. In the video below, Dos Santos looks back at his big victory over Werdum.
Dos Santos-Overeem takes place May 26 from Las Vegas. Werdum has since returned to the UFC and is looking to get a rematch with dos Santos down the road.
