MMAjunkie recently spoke to former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos ahead of his upcoming fight with Derrick Lewis, which is set to headline UFC on ESPN+ 4 on Saturday. JDS spoke about the idea of a potential heavyweight fight between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier for the title, which he doesn’t like. Below are some highlights.

Dos Santos on the potential Cormier vs. Lesnar fight: “This thing where Daniel Cormier wants to fight Brock Lesnar; I know he wants to make money, but it doesn’t make any sense. The only one who wants to see that fight or make that fight is him. Nobody else wants to see that. Of course Brock Lesnar he’s a very polemic guy so people like to watch him and they pay to watch him, that’s why he wants to fight him. But man, that would be ridiculous to have him back in the sport and have him fighting for the title already. It would be kind of disrespect to all of us in the sport and even with the organization. I don’t think that’s the thing to make, but whatever. Politics are politics.”

Dos Santos on wanting to face Daniel Cormier: “I will win here and I would be very glad to face Daniel Cormier. Daniel Cormier is a different champion. He has achieved some amazing things in his career and for me it would be very nice to be facing him. I hope I could be the next one, but I don’t really care. What I really want is to keep myself active. I want to fight as soon as possible after this victory and whatever happens in this career, I know my title shot is coming very soon.”
