“When they told me to come and make ‘The Ultimate Fighter 13,’ I was very happy. It’s a new opportunity for me. I was supposed to fight for the title, but Cain got hurt. When the UFC told me to come [to Las Vegas] and make this show with Brock, I was very happy… I’m very excited to fight with him. He’s a pretty big fighter, and I think he is very dangerous. But I think the fight against him will be very good for me because I think I am faster than him, and I’m going to use my boxing, for sure. I always use my boxing to win fights. That’s going to happen again… I think he doesn’t accept punches very well. I don’t know why. I guess because he’s from wrestling. I am from boxing. I have no problem with punches. The guys can punch me, and I feel nothing. I just keep going. That doesn’t happen with him. He’s got a weak chin… I think once you’re over 220 pounds, it’s all the same thing. All the guys are huge and strong. I believe in me. I think I can knock him out.”

According to Fight Metric’s official UFC records, Junior dos Santos lands more strikes per minute than any other fighter in the UFC. Guess who’s right behind him? Cain Velasquez. Brock Lesnar will definitely have his work cut out for him on June 11.
