Former Champ Junior dos Santos Defends Brock Lesnar’s UFC 226 Antics

Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar made quite the scene at UFC 226. Now fellow former title holder Junior dos Santos has come forward with his thoughts on the matter.

Speaking on ESPN’s The Ariel Helwani MMA Show, dos Santos revealed his thoughts on Lesnar shoving Daniel Cormier inside the octagon.

“Man that’s weird because he wasn’t competing. But we have to see this fact: Cormier won the heavyweight title and now he is the champion of two divisions. And he was the guy who invited Brock Lesnar to step in the cage. So if the two-division champion invites you to the cage, almost challenging you…so it was kind of strange. But I understand Daniel Cormier and probably if I was in his shoes I probably would do the same. Somehow people love to see Brock Lesnar fight. People love to see that huge guy and they pay for it. So that’s why UFC wants to do that kind of fight, people want to see it. So I am understanding more what’s happening in this scenario.”
