If the UFC has a clone of trash-talking Conor McGregor in every weight class, they’d be a lot better off financially. But they don’t, and at heavyweight, they have the farthest thing from it in former champ Junior dos Santos. Thanks to a brief title reign and a stint as TUF coach, we know JDS to be the nicest, kindest, most genuine dude on the planet. Sure, he can knock people out, but it’s not hard picturing him volunteering in the kitchens of homeless shelters and giving orphans puppies to play with..
In the video below, which is the third episode of UFC 211: Embedded, we see champs Stipe Miocic and Joanne Jedrzejczyk and challenger Jessica Andrade make their final travel preparations. We also have Dos Santos’ big, benign grin filling up the screen. So, yeah. He’s not Conor McGregor.
