UFC NEWS – Dos Santos Excited For A Stand Up War Against Overeem

January 2, 2012 4:30 am by Pedro Carrasco

“It’s going to be really, really good for the fans. Because he’s a striker (and) I’m a striker, it’s going to be a stand-up battle. … He’s pretty good at using his kicks, his knees, his punches. But I believe so much in my boxing.”

UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos, tells USA Today that he is excited to face newly crowned contender Alistair Overeem.

Dos Santos initially won his UFC heavyweight title in the UFC on FOX 1 main event. He then went into knee surgery to repair a nagging injury and has been waiting to resume training ever since.

This past weekend Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem squared off for a chance to be the first title challenger for the newly crowned champion, Dos Santos.

It was Overeem, the K-1 Grand Prix champion, who took out Lesnar to earn the shot and Dos Santos announced on the same night that he has only 10-days left until he can resume training.

These two heavyweight strikers are on a collision course to wreak havoc in the Octagon, but who’s striking will prevail?
