Junior Dos Santos On First UFC Win in Chicago


Junior Dos Santos

Who knew that when UFC 90 hit the Allstate Arena back in October, 2008 that we’d be watching a future heavyweight champion in his first UFC fight. Such was the case as Junior Dos Santos entered the match as a huge underdog to BJJ specialist Fabricio Werdum.

‘Cigano’ not only got the dramatic, upset victory, he also took home ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors. He hasn’t lost a fight in the UFC, going 8-0 to date and taking the heavyweight title from Cain Velasquez last November on Fox.
