JDS Calls Fight With Alistair Overeem “Interesting”

April 1, 2015 2:03 am by BJPENN.COM News



“That’s an interesting fight. If the UFC also thinks so, it will happen. He’s doing well, got himself two wins in a row. Before that he was sort of apathetic in the division. No matter who it is, I just want that can make me evolve and get better at my quest to be the champion again. My goal is to just fight again. But that could be a good fight, yes”.

“I don’t believe he’s ducking me. He’s a great fighter who conquered many titles. We, fighters, don’t look at our opponents with fear or anything, that doesn’t make sense to me and I think it’s the same for most of the real ones. He’s training with Greg Jackson, has added new weapons to his game, like the stomp we see Jon Jones do a lot. His footwork was good, he struck without getting hit. He evolved. He’s also not as buff as he was before, he has been working on his speed”.

“I have many friends over there. Antônio Carlos ‘Cara de Sapato’, who is like a brother to me is training there now. There’s Bigfoot, Roan Carneiro and Yuri Carlton who is my jiu-jitsu master. There’s also Steve Mocco, who is a wrestling beast. I’d like to diversify. Big Nog and I used to go to San Diego and that helped me a lot. I think it would be nice to go back when it doesn’t get in the way of my camp at Nova Uniao”.

In an interview with the Brazilian Media (Combate.com), former UFC heavyweight champion touched on a potential scrap against Alistair Overeem.
