I natt ägde Fight Night 142 rum i Adelaide i Australien, där tungviktarna Junior dos Santos och Tai Tuvasa möttes under galans huvudmatch.
Dos Santos segrade via TKO via slag i rond 2 och har nu 2 raka vinster, med ett record på 25-5.
Nu utmanar brasilianaren den holländske forne Strikeforce-mästaren Alistair Overeem till returmatch och passar på att ge Brock Lesnar en känga.
Det har under en tid pratats om att Lesnar som tidigare åkte fast för dopning kommer att möta den nuvarande mästaren Daniel Cormier.
Dos Santos via MMAFighting:
[Daniel Cormier is] incredible. He’s an amazing athlete. He’s doing some amazing things in his career. I think it would be very good for me — actually for anyone — to fight someone like him. I don’t know what’s happening right now. I think he wants to fight Brock Lesnar or something, it doesn’t make any sense for me. I don’t really care. If the UFC wants to make that happen, that’s fine.
The way I understand is that’s what Daniel Cormier wants to do to make money. So somehow, people want to see that, because if they pay to see that it’s gonna be interesting for the UFC, of course. Somehow, Brock Lesnar sells. Somehow they want to see him fighting. I don’t know why. Why? Because he says stupid things? Because he’s a big guy who says stupid things? It doesn’t really make much sense for me.
Even because he doesn’t deserve to fight for the title. He has no record for that. Also, because, man, he was out because USADA took him out. Not because he wants. USADA took him out and now he’s gonna come back and fight for the title. If MMA is a sport, a real sport, it doesn’t make any sense. But like I said, if people want to see that, we have to give [it to] them.
En returmatch mot Overeem känns i nuläget logisk för dos Santos.
I think this rematch would make a lot of sense now. Overeem is a smart guy. Every time he asks for something, it’s because he thinks it’s going to be better for him. I don’t do that type of shit. … I’m asking for him because it makes sense. In my mind, it makes sense to do this rematch right now.
Overeem utmanade tidigare Derrick Lewis. Vilka tycker ni ska gå match härnäst?
