Once upon a time Junior Dos Santos was the UFC’s heavyweight champ and the center of the hard-hitting universe. But everyone gets old at some point, and the amiable Brazilian is no exception. Now he’s a shadow of his former self.

Odds are there will be punches thrown. And sadly, odds are that if any of them land on Dos Santos, he’s going to crumble. But we’ll always have the kinder memories of what was – and the video below to remind us that JDS was at one time a force to be reckoned with.
