Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos wasted no time making a push for a rematch with Cain Velasquez following Alistair Overeem’s loss Saturday night at UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar.
Overeem was guaranteed the next shot at Velasquez and the UFC heavyweight title, but was knocked out by Antonio Silva.
“Velasquez vs. Dos santos 3!!! Let’s do it UFC,” dos Santos posted on Twitter just minutes after the match.
Dos Santos was defeated in December by Velasquez, as he was picked apart for the better part of 25 minutes. “Cigano” claimed to have issues outside the Octagon – including a divorce from his wife – as reasons for not being 100-percent entering the bout.
