Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos was a guest on “UFC Tonight” earlier this week.
Dos Santos, who challenges Stipe Miocic for the title Saturday at UFC 211, talked about the champion, his biggest rival and more.
Below are highlights:
Dos Santos on if he got the proper attention with so many ATT fighters fighting at UFC 211: “Yes, I think so. I was looking for this. We have like nine guys fighting on this card. It’s amazing. We did a song for it. From AC/DC: ‘I’m ATT, I’m dynamite.’”
Dos Santos on if he feels this will be his last chance at a title fight: “I’m just 33 years old. I have a lot to give for this sport. I’m very confident I’m going to be champion again. I make my opportunities. I’m going to make it happen.”
Dos Santos on if Stipe is his biggest rival: “I don’t think so. He’s a nice guy. I think my biggest rival is Cain Velasquez. We did the trilogy together. But right now I’m facing the champion of the world and he deserves my attention and my respect, and the way I’m going to show it is by giving him 100 percent of my attention in the Octagon.”
