Now this is a finish that would surprise more than a few.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos was a guest on MMAJunkie Radio. On the show, dos Santos talked about his upcoming fight against Mark Hunt at UFC160 on May, 25.

Both dos Santos and Hunt are noted, world-class bangers with heavy, accurate hands but dos Santos, it sounds, is believing in the importance of the ground game and feels that he could end that fight there.

“You have to get prepared to fight anywhere,” dos Santos said. “I’m training a lot in my jiu-jitsu skills, and I think I’m getting more confident in that area. If I feel I have to take him down, I will do that, and I will be looking to submit him.”

JDS went on to talk about the need to have more weapons in his arsenal.

“I was trying to fight standing all the time,” said dos Santos. “But it’s MMA and you have to use jiu-jitsu and wrestling. So now, it’s more clear to me. I have to use all my skills to win the fights, especially when you’re fighting against someone like Cain Velasquez.”
