Junior dos Santos Expected Back In The Octagon By June Or July

Luiz Dorea, coach of the former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, revealed today that Dos Santos is expecting to get back inside the octagon by May or June of this year.

Dorea, speaking via sources said this regarding the matter:

“He took some time off and is now back to training. We’re thinking about a fight around May or June, but there’s nothing set yet. The UFC has great athletes, the best, but a fight that we wanted to see is against Overeem. It was expected to happen before and didn’t. But they have great fighters in the UFC, so anything can happen. He will fight anyone they want.”

“We have plans to spend some time in the U.S., seek new training. We need to continue to evolve. When an athlete thinks he knows everything, it’s the beginning of the end. We need to learn new techniques, so we plan to go to the U.S. to train wrestling and also train in other gyms in Brazil.”

“We shouldn’t think about the title now, we need to work hard and win fights. To get there, we need to beat other fighters first. It may take a year, maybe more or maybe less, but the title is the consequence of our wins.”
