Junior Dos Santos Says He Learned English by Singing Adele and Katy Perry Songs

Jordy McElroyCorrespondent IApril 6, 2012

When he isn't knocking around 265-pound men in the Octagon, Junior Dos Santos spends his free time singing along to the catchy tunes of pop superstars Adele and Katy Perry.

According to TMZ, the UFC heavyweight champion credits the pop songs for helping him improve his English-speaking skills.

Dos Santos not only admitted that he listens to Adele and Katy Perry, but in front of TMZ cameras, the Brazilian decided to belt out a few lines from one of his favorite songs.

"Yea, I like Katy Perry," said Dos Santos. "I love Adele too. I love Adele."

What if a group of guys pulled up right beside his car? Would Dos Santos still leave the windows down blasting Katy Perry songs?

"Sure," Dos Santos told TMZ.

Dos Santos and Katy Perry do have one thing in common: they both love fireworks. While Perry sings about them, Dos Santos creates them with his fists.

When you're the world heavyweight champion, you can listen to whatever you want. It isn't like anyone is going to stop him.
