With the exception of a submission loss earlier in his career, Junior dos Santos has been unstoppable. Actually, with the exception of Roy Nelson, all “Cigano” does is stop people.
Junior dos Santos is undoubtedly the best technical striker in the UFC’s heavyweight division (I cannot go with the whole scope of MMA heavyweights because of that guy who eats horse meat). “Cigano” has punched his way through Werdum, “Cro Cop”, Struve, Gonzaga, Nelson, etcetera and so on.
Had Lesnar been receiving shots from dos Santos in stead of Cain Velasquez, Lesnar might not have had the brain tissue left to write a book (not saying Cain does not hit like a mule kicks, I am just saying dos Santos HITS LIKE A MULE KICKS).
I would love to see “Cigano” get a match-up with Shane Carwin or Brock Lesnar before his title bout with Velasquez finally comes to fruition. Hopefully, he does not lose and get derailed from title contention, but I doubt it.
