Following two dominating displays in back to back victories against Stefan Struve and Roy Nelson, t seems that the mammoth Dutch Heavyweight Alistair Overeem has finally found a stable footing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC. When he was signed by the UFC back in 2011, there was an immense hype created around his arrival but it quickly went down like a lead balloon following the brooding Heavyweight’s dismantling at the hands of Travis Browne and Antonio Silva.
But the Dutchman has created some sort of momentum with these two victories and rekindled a faint glimmer of hope of fighting for the UFC Heavyweight Championship. And in a recent interview, the Dutchman expressed his interest in a fight against former UFC Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
According to the Demolition Man, the personal choice for him to be honest would be a showdown against the Brazilian. He mentioned that neither of them are booked for fights and while he will hear about his future in the next couple of weeks, logic suggests a showdown against Junior dos Santos.
He mentioned that there is no other fight that makes sense. He mentioned that he will wait and see what the UFC does, but he doesn’t see anybody else there – everybody knows that Cigano is the gatekeeper.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos has been involved in his fair share of brutal battles over the years.
And the Brazilian has now had to undergo a double surgery to heal the wounds of his last few fights. The former champion, who defeated fellow Heavyweight Stipe Miocic in December via a unanimous decision result, needed surgery on his nose and knee following the brutal 25 minute battle inside the Octagon.
Posting a photo of him on the popular photo sharing platform Instagram following the surgery, Junior let his fans know that his surgeries have been successful and he will now begin his rehabilitation process.
Writing on Instagram, Junior dos Santos said that there are some people for whom a simple thank you not be sufficient enough as a sign of gratitude, but he added that he would still like to extend his thanks to Moises Cohen, his doctor and his crew who have been taking great care of him once again as well as to doctor Sergio Miranda, who performed the surgery on his nose and his crew and his daughter Maria Vitoria.
