Big Nog: JDS Will Look For A Knockout Against Brock Lesnar

As for Lesnar, he doesn’t kick, so Cigano will not need to train too much defensive Muay Thai, as he was training for Cain, he can now rely more on training offensive Muay Thai. And this is the type of fight where he’ll look for the KO, train a lot of wrestling, train the guard because he could end up falling underneath (Lesnar), even though Lesnar’s GnP is not as good as Cain’s. But (Cigano) will look for the KO in this fight.

—Junior dos Santos’ mentor, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, talking to PVT (translated via BE) about JDS’ upcoming fight against Brock Lesnar

JDS undoubtedly has the hands to knock out Brock Lesnar but the question is, can he stay on his feet long enough to do it? JDS has shown some solid takedown defense but he doesn’t have the wrestling credentials Cain Velasquez and Shane Carwin have. This is a dangerous fight for JDS.
