UFC Fight Night 142 will headline an absolute slugfest as former UFC heavyweight champion and #7 ranked contender Junior Dos Santos (19-5 MMA, 13-4 UFC) takes on undefeated #10 ranked Tai ‘Bam Bam’ Tuivasa (8-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in a classic veteran vs. prospect matchup on December 2.

UFC: Tui Tuivasa puts JDS on blast: "I'm coming for your bald head!" - fight

With some tension between both the fighters, the trash talk has begun. Tuivasa claims Dos Santos was the one who initiated the bad blood and hence he won’t think twice despite Dos Santos’ legendary status. Tuivasa took to Twitter addressing Dos Santos as ‘bald head’. (via Twitter):

Undefeated Tuivasa is on a three-fight winning streak. His last victory came against former champ Andrei Arlovski at UFC 225 in June. Dos Santos, on the other hand, is alternating between wins and losses and is 4-4 in his last eight fights.

Dos Santos managed to get things back on track at Fight Night Boise in July when he defeated former WSOF champ Blagoy Ivanov via a lopsided unanimous decision. He would certainly like to accomplish some consistency to cement himself a title shot in near future.

Other fights on the card include:

265 lbs.: Mark Hunt vs. Justin Willis
205 lbs.: Tyson Pedro vs. Mauricio Rua
125 lbs.: Ben Nguyen vs. Wilson Reis
205 lbs.: Paul Craig vs. Jim Crute
125 lbs.: Kai Kara-France vs. Ashkan Mokhtarian
170 lbs.: Alexey Kunchenko vs. Yushin Okami
