“For sure, I’m close (to a title shot) now. If the UFC asks, then I’m ready for sure but maybe one more fight, maybe on the Velasquez vs. dos Santos card. After that, if I win, maybe I will fight (the champion) in Brazil. I don’t know. I’m just here to fight. I’m just going to rest for one week. Then, I will go back to training again. I’m just going to wait for what the UFC says.”
Since losing to JDS in 2008 the Brazilian has rattled off an impressive 5-1 record with his only other loss coming at the hands of Alistair Overeem. With improved striking on display in every outing, is he ready to face the champ?
