The 45-year-old heavyweight noted that he was interested in finding the strongest opponent and for this reason agreed to a fight with Timothy Johnson. “Dos Santos has had a series of failures. In addition, he was fired from the UFC, ”he said.

On October 19, Johnson admitted that he expects to get the title fight after defeating Emelianenko. The American noted that he was ready to confront the eminent fighter in his homeland. The Bellator tournament, which will lead the fight between Johnson and Emelianenko, will be held on October 23 in Moscow.

Dos Santos expressed his readiness to fight Emelianenko. Another UFC veteran Josh Barnett also spoke about the interest in such a fight.
