However that had him going on against former title challenger and powerhouse Francis ‘The Predator’ Ngannou. Dos Santos over extended an overhand right, only to find himself lying on the canvas. That being said, Dos Santos had to take some time off and move back to the drawing board before making another run.
Dos Santos however has decided to enjoy his time off as the former champ will be seen on the upcoming season of “Dança dos Famosos”, the Brazilian version of Dancing with the Stars that airs at Globo’s “Domingão do Faustão” starting August 25.
