BURBANK, Calif. Demaryius Thomas Jersey . —If Junior Dos
Santos ever ended up in the same ring as Wladimir Klitschko, the UFCs
heavyweight champion is pretty sure he knows what hed do to the biggest man in
boxing. “I could beat that guy, man,” Dos Santos said. “Maybe not easy, but I
could knock him out.” Its not bravado or comedy from the unbeaten Dos Santos,
who has emerged as one of mixed martial arts top attractions with an all-around
game built on a foundation of stand-up fighting. The 6-foot-4 Brazilian bruiser
is among the best boxers in his sport, and hes confident he could hold his own
with Klitschko, the three-belt heavyweight champ. “I watch a lot of fights with
Wladimir, and I see a lot of holes,” Dos Santos said, warming to the idea while
he downs a 22-ounce steak with asparagus and mashed potatoes for lunch in a
Burbank restaurant filled with well-dressed professionals from the film studios
and media companies within walking distance. “Wladimir, the Klitschkos, theyre
amazing,” he added. “I like to watch them fight, especially Wladimir, but its
kind of boring. They are really good at what they do, but they are very careful.
They dont go to the fight to finish the fight. They stay there in that safe
strategy all the time. Its not the Mike Tyson time. Guys dont finish fights.”
Dos Santos isnt starting a boxing career any time soon, however. Hes preparing
for his next title defence in a rematch with Cain Velasquez at UFC 155 in
December, and he already has an eye on a 2013 showdown with Alistair Overeem,
the suspended contender Dos Santos labels “a liar.” “I love who I am, and I want
to stay in MMA,” he said. “Boxing is going down.” Dos Santos is emerging as a
global MMA star, and he intends to raise his profile next year by spending more
time in the U.S. Hell train more frequently in San Diego, the home to several
expatriate Brazilian MMA luminaries, improving his already strong English and
attempting to expand his fan base. A part-time move to California also will
allow Dos Santos to improve his wrestling, which he freely acknowledges isnt the
strongest aspect of his MMA game. Dos Santos has trouble finding suitable
training partners for wrestling in Brazil, where jiu-jitsu and striking are
kings. The champions tendency to hurt his training partners didnt help, either:
One wrestler who was scheduled to spend six weeks in his camp last year made it
through only three days before quitting. “Im having a hard time finding a guy
like Cain to train with in Brazil,” Dos Santos said. “I want to take care of my
career and learn everything.” Dos Santos has done nothing in his relatively
short MMA career to suggest hes lacking any knowledge. After a series of
first-round knockouts and two gritty decision victories, he claimed the title in
October 2011 with a brutal knockout of Velasquez 64 seconds into their bout in
the UFCs first prime-time network show. Dos Santos followed it up with a
second-round victory over Frank Mir in his first title defence, dominating the
MMA veteran and former champ. Dos Santos initially was slated to defend his belt
against Overeem last May, but the Dutch kickboxing champion tested positive for
elevated testosterone levels, earning a suspension through December. If Dos
Santos beats Velasquez, his next defence is likely to be against Overeem—and
that doesnt sit well with the champ. “He doesnt deserve to fight for the title,”
Overeem said. “He just failed the drug test. Thats trash. Thats very bad. He
shouldnt fight for the title, but I want to fight with him. He lied. He lies a
lot. I want that fight. I would enjoy to fight with him, but it doesnt mean he
deserves to fight for the title.” Hell first give a rematch to Velasquez, even
though the former Arizona State wrestler was steamrollered by Dos Santos in his
only career defeat. Dos Santos will begin his camp for Velasquez in Sao Paulo at
the training complex of Corinthians, Brazils richest soccer club, before flying
to Las Vegas on Christmas Eve. “Some people are asking me if the fight was too
fast, but I dont think so,” Dos Santos said. “And if he gives me the opportunity
again, its going to be even faster.” Tickets went on sale for the UFCs
traditional year-end Las Vegas show on Friday. Until he gets a shot at a
Klitschko, Dos Santos will enjoy the smaller fruits of his MMA labour. He
recently paid for surgery for his mother on her varicose veins, a memory that
left him with a broad smile. “That was one of those moments where you stop and
say, Yeah, life is good for me,” he said. Von Miller Youth Jersey . The Brewers bounced
back from a demoralizing ninth-inning loss Tuesday night to take two-of-three
games from the Blue Jays. Gallardo (6-5) went 6 2-3 innings, giving up three
runs and seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. Von Miller Womens Jersey . The seventh-ranked
Frenchman, playing in the Swedish capital for the first time, put on an
impressive display of serve and volley tennis to line up a meeting on Saturday
with 2009 champion Marcos Baghdatis. http://www.denverbroncosjerseyonsale.com/peyton-manning-jersey
. The cause of the pain was not immediately clear. A Magic spokesman says
Richardson is with the team and in the arena, and indicated that the problem is
not believed to be serious. Peyton Manning Broncos Jersey . The league
will receive 120 million pounds ($185 million) over three years from the 2013-14
season, a jump from the 82 million (then $135 million) pounds under the current
terms. Britains third largest bank has held naming rights to the worlds richest

Cerrone defeated Melvin Guillard via knockout and Jake Shields won by
unanimous decison over Ed Herman.BOWMANVILLE, Ont. (May 19, 2012) – Scott
Steckly has picked up right where he left off – at the top. The defending NASCAR
