Junior dos Santos shows off new shredded physique and svelte mustache

The only thing more impressive than Junior dos Santos’ lean heavyweight physique is that swoon-worthy lip warmer.

Junior dos Santos is the antithesis of this author in isolation: in shape and sporting tremendous facial hair.

The former UFC heavyweight champion updated fans on his fitness status amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It turns out dos Santos, 36, is absolutely shredded. What’s more, ‘Cigano’ is also sporting a phenomenal mustache.

“I think this ketogenic diet is kinda working what do you guys think?” dos Santos asked his more than 1.3 million followers. “Back to 238 lbs!?” That’s the kind of weight Dos Santos was sporting when he first won UFC gold back in 2011. He clocked in as high as 255 lbs for his fight against Tai Tuivasa back in 2018.

Dos santos (21-7) is coming off consecutive TKO losses to Curtis Blaydes and Francis Ngannou. Prior to that, JDS seemed to be on the cusp of a fourth UFC heavyweight title shot after rattling off consecutive wins against Derrick Lewis, Tai Tuivasa and Blagoy Ivanov.
