Speaking to Sporting News, dos Santos let his thoughts on Tai Tuivasa be known.

“He said he represents street fighting. I was watching the fight last night and saw that and was like, ‘What?! That’s not even a martial art.’ I thought I was fighting against a martial artist, but that’s not the case. I want to know more about this, and one day I’ll ask him. To represent street fighting … that’s just stupid. Who fights in the streets? It’s not even fair. That’s a coward.”

Later speaking to Sporting News, Tai Tuivasa retaliated with a statement of his own.

“I was giving him credit for being a great, but he can go (expletive) himself now. Just because of what Bruce Buffer said? As if I’m gonna say I’m a black belt or something. Calling someone a coward is a bit shallow from a steroid injecting little muppet like that.”

Now Tai Tuivasa has taken to social media with a series of trash-talking. Check it out below.

“When Junior Dos Steriods calls me a coward shut your bald ass head up I’m a show you these streets December 2nd @junior_cigano
