Exclusive Video: Junior dos Santos Prepping for Spring Showdown with Velasquez

Junior dos Santos interview – Watch more Funny Videos

CagePotato video correspondent Brian D’Souza braved the X-Gym in Rio De Janeiro recently and nabbed some interview time with the No. 1 contender to the UFC heavyweight title (and recent Playboy Mag fashion model) Junior dos Santos. First off, please accept our assurances that things went way better than when BDS tried to conversate in English with the middleweight champ this week. In fact, unless you’re just an out-and-out dick we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at dos Santos’ English, which appears to be coming along nicely. Secondly, no that’s not a weed shirt he’s wearing. We don’t think.

While no official date has yet been set for his shot at the 265-pound gold, dos Santos says he expects a March or April showdown with Cain Velasquez and is already working out down in Rio with the likes of the Nogueira brothers, Anderson Silva and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante to get ready. Dos Santos and D’ Souza cover a number of topics in their short time together, including what Cigano thought of Velasquez’s recent win over Brock Lesnar. Sounds like he enjoyed it as much as the rest of us.

“That fight was very interesting,” says dos Santos with a chuckle. “Brock Lesnar tried to fight like a monster, like what he is. I think in my mind Cain was perfect, because he just waited (out) that initial pressure from Brock Lensar. (He) waited for the right moment to change the fight and win. Cain Velasquez was perfect in that fight.”

There must be a lot of Brazilian chicks in there cause D’Souza is constantly looking the other way and is really not paying any attention to JDS.

Dos Santos has two things on his side...peterbuilt and mack. One is on the right, the other on the left.

Cain dropped several times to congos weak punches. He very well might drop dead once dos santos puts his hands on him.

War Dos Santos

That was a good interview. I like Dos santos, he will certainly make it a damn good fight.
I don't think he can beat cain, but hey crazier shit could happen. I would be just as happy to have either of those great guys as champs as long as jock fakner never gets his hand on another UFC belt again.

I am glad to see dos santos doing so well with his english, I have no problem understanding him, and he is a classy guy, so I can't say anything bad about him.

yeah whats up with the creepy interviews sitting so close to dudes. It reminds me of chicks who slide all the way over like a stuck magnet to your side when your driving somewhere. awkward!

So is D'Souza a close-sitter or is that just a Brazilian thing?

Agreed...was going to make fun of it too, but then noticed that the writer used the made up word "conversate"...the word is converse...maybe JDS can give you some english lessons ;)

^ Me too bro.
I was gonna make fun of JDS and the way he talks, but I'm waaaaaay to nervous about it.

You guys are crazy if you think Cain will run over Dos Santos.

D' Souza kinda bothered me in that interview...

CV and JDS will be a good fight. I want to see that, soon as.
