"I’m looking forward for this fight against Brock Lesnar, because it’s going to be a great fight for me to prove I am the number one contender for the title shot and want to make all my fans happy. I just want to say thank you for Bad Boy, Luiz Dorea who is my coach, and all the people around me who help me. I want to say thank you and it’s going to be a great fight for sure."
Dos Santos, who has been featured weekly on Spike's The Ultimate Fighter, gave up a title shot against the injured champion Cain Velasquez to meet the sport's biggest superstar in the middle of the cage. Dos Santos intends to test Lesnar's chin with his dynamite hands. Lesnar standup skills were put to the test by Velasquez and Shane Carwin - and found wanting. Can he withstand the power punching of dos Santos long enough to take the big Brazilian to the mat? That will be the story of the fight June 11th in Vancouver at UFC 131.
