Junior dos Santos: “Somebody is Gonna Get Knocked Out” (UFC 146 Video)

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, returning from an injured knee, is preparing for the first defense of his belt when he faces Alistair Overeem at UFC 146 on May 26.

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.”
