Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos recently spoke with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi ahead of his wrestling debut on this week’s episode of AEW Rampage.
Commenting on his pre-debut preparations, Dos Santos had this to say,
“I’m a combat sports man. I’ve been training my whole life. No doubts, I know how to fight and I’m going to go there to fight. I’m gonna go there to finish these guys. I know it’s not a joke. You’re going to go there, put on a good show, and give your best. I’m ready for that. I’ve been training some good skills with King Mo and many guys from the gym. Everybody is willing to go in the ring and represent our gym and defend our name. I’m privileged to be in this position and I’m going to do my best.”
When asked if he can see a future for himself in professional wrestling, Dos Santos said, “Of course. I’ve been enjoying everything I’m doing and to get in the ring to be fighting again, to be performing, to give my best performance for everybody to watch is amazing. I’m very excited about this. I’m happy and feeling that good energy.”
