“I never felt very confident to do that before, but I train that a lot in the gym. I was feeling way faster than him, so I tried it and WOW, it was amazing. It wasn’t very well-connected, so when I finished the kick I saw him going down and I enjoyed it. Like I said all the time, I trust my hands, I really believe I can knock anyone out. Anyone! This guy is really tough, so I came to knock him out … and I did.”
Former UFC heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos, made an emphatic return to the Octagon last weekend with a Fight of the Night performance against Mark Hunt.
The former champ has made a career out of dropping his opponents with his fists, but last Saturday he used a spinning back kick to get the job done and not only surprised the audience, but apparently himself too.
