Random Fight: Junior dos Santos vs. Joaquim Ferreira

I’m busy running numbers and working on spreadsheets, but I didn’t want today to go by without posting something. So I decided to post the video of the only loss in the career of UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos:

But before you go crazy, thinking a UFC fighter could easily repeat this result, consider that dos Santos was still very inexperienced at the time of this fight, and made a couple mistakes that he is unlikely to repeat (such as throwing a knee while against the ropes). It does makes me curious about what would happen if Cain Velasquez could manage a takedown on dos Santos though.

    Dos Santos will not get caught in an armbar from the bottom by Velasquez.
