Junior dos Santos’ UFC Breakthrough KO of Fabricio Werdum


In his first fight in the UFC, Junior Dos Santos entered the Octagon as a huge underdog as he was set to face veteran heavyweight Fabricio Werdum. That night was Cigaon’s first step toward the UFC title that is now wrapped firmly around his waist.

Things haven’t gotten any easier for Dos Santos, however. He is slated to make the first defense of the belt he took from Cain Velasquez when he steps in the Octagon across from former Dream, Strikeforce, and K-1 champion Alistair Overeem at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas.

Check out JDS’ knockout of Werdum below…
