Junior Dos Santos Weighs In On UFC 148′s Top Fights

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos gave MMAInterviews.TV his predictions for the two biggest fights on the UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II card.

The event, which goes down tonight from Las Vegas, features Anderson Silva defending his UFC middleweight title in the main event against Chael Sonnen, and Forrest Griffin taking on a retiring Tito Ortiz.

Think for sure, Anderson is gonna knock Chael out in the first round. Anderson is not normal. Anderson is very smart, (but) he is different. He’s the No. 1 pound-for-pound (fighter) in the world, and I think he’s gonna keep being (No. 1) after this fight.

As for the co-main event between ex-UFC light heavyweight champions, “Cigano” said both fighters are good, but picked Griffin to claim the bout.

Dos Santos is rumored to be facing Cain Velasquez later this year in a rematch for the belt. No date has been announced for the fight.
