If we all find ourselves in some post-apocalyptic Earth and you encounter Junior Dos Santos amongst a football field of rubble, don’t expect him to be some altruistic saint that will help you survive. In fact, if you see Junior Dos Santos in a post-apocalyptic earth and he’s not surrounded by burning effigies, systematic explosions and a giant axe made from radiator blades, human bones and tire rubber — then it’s not Junior Dos Santos. In your post apocalyptic journey, you’ve encountered someone that only appears to be one of the most feared heavyweights in the world. You’ve been duped. Now turn to page 47.
Ah, damn. That’s what you would read if this article were the end of a chapter from a Choose Your Own Adventure book.
The fact that Junior Dos Santos appears to be a guy that you should so obviously not want to anger should not surprise any of you. We’ve seen evidence of his path of destruction from the human remains he left at UFC 90, 95, 103, 108, UFC Live and UFC 117 with four of those six wins ending in a first round knockout. Now in a recent interview with UFC Brazil, Junior Dos Santos says he’s never had a performance enhancing drug, but he believes ‘some’ heavyweights out there have.
“No I’ve never seen (someone taking performance-enhancing drugs PEDs ), but I think at Heavyweight that happens a lot for sure. When you see people like Alistair Overeem, Brock Lesnar, look at the size of those guys, they’re really big. As Mario (Yamasaki) said, a lot of people use them but a lot of people don’t. I’m someone who has never used (PEDs), I think I came in the good phase of MMA and I’ve never used them.”
If you want to refute Junior Dos Santos claims that he doesn’t use PEDs, then feel free to knock on his door in Salvador, Brazil and tell it to his 12-1 face. [Source]
