He knows what’s in store. Overeem is a former champion at Dream, K-1, and Strikeforce. His credentials, particularly as a striker are impeccable.
But dos Santos doesn’t sell himself short in that regard either.
“I love boxing and I’m a really confident guy on my hands. So I really believe I can knock anyone out,” dos Santos said on Tuesday in Las Vegas.
That only leads to what could be a spectacular finish, at least if dos Santos’ assessment holds true that night. “I think he’s pretty good. He has good stand-up skills. He’s a striker, I’m a striker, somebody is gonna get knocked out.”
