first_img MMA Fighting Junior dos Santos will have his hands full Saturday when he faces Alistair Overeem at UFC on FOX 17 in Orlando, but he’s already thinking ahead.During a Reddit Ask Me Anything session with fans, Dos Santos says history will repeat itself if he’s booked against UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.”It would be the same thing,” Werdum said. “I would knock him out.”It only took Dos Santos 80 seconds to KO Werdum during his promotional debut at UFC 90 back in 2008. Dos Santos went on to win ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors while Werdum was pushed out of the division.Werdum made his way to rival Strikforce, where he would score the win of his career in a first-round submission of former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.Werdum then went on to lose a frustrating decision to Overeem in the Heavyweight Grand Prix Quarterfinal in 2011, but has gone 6-0 since rejoining the UFC. If Dos Santos can succeed where Werdum failed, the former heavyweight champ wants his title shot.”I think with a win I will be next in line,” said Dos Santos. “I’m ready to get that belt back!” Video: Aalon Cruz scores ridiculous jumping knee KO on Contender Series [Pics] The 43 Greatest Guitarists Ever Ranked.
