The decision from Daniel Cormier to call out Brock Lesnar might’ve left many people angry. But Junior Dos Santos thinks Cormier did the right thing.
Speaking on the MMA Show this week, Santos noted that people like to see Lesnar fight.
“Man that’s weird because he wasn’t competing. But we have to see this fact: Cormier won the heavyweight title and now he is the champion of two divisions. And he was the guy who invited Brock Lesnar to step in the cage. So if the two-division champion invites you to the cage, almost challenging you…so it was kind of strange. But I understand Daniel Cormier and probably if I was in his shoes I probably would do the same. Somehow people love to see Brock Lesnar fight. People love to see that huge guy and they pay for it. So that’s why UFC wants to do that kind of fight, people want to see it. So I am understanding more what’s happening in this scenario,” he said.
The 34-year-old Santos got a decision victory against Blagoy Ivanov this past week and is looking for a rematch with Stipe Miocic.
