Former UFC heavyweight champ Dos Santos is known for his boxing and knockout power. In fact, he’s viewed as being amongst the best in both departments as far as fighters on the organization’s roster. However, “Cigano” recently claimed he could beat two men with PhD’s in the sweet science, Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko. The Russian brothers are among boxing’s all-time greats and have laid claim to plenty of gold in their respective careers. Frankly, Dos Santos must have been chugging a little too much Acai juice if he honestly thinks he could hang with either on the boxing front. He was out-struck by Cain Velasquez at times in their most recently rumble and that’s a guy whose background is in wrestling. Sure, Dos Santos could go for broke and land a fight-ending blow, but chances are good he’d never get close enough to unleash that sort of damage.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the possibility of a bout between Nick Diaz-Michael Bisping to Georges St-Pierre contemplating retirement after his next fight to a quick glimpse at Saturday night’s lineup for UFC 166.
