Junior Dos Santos wants another fight with Stipe Miocic.
It looks like the Brazilian has already identified a specific name on his wish list. Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos (19-5) after winning with Blagoy Ivanov (16-2, 1NC) stated that he is keeping an eye on his former rival, Stipe Miocic (18-3). "I do not know what the fight would look like, but this rematch would be welcome." Both men have met twice in the UFC Octagon. In the first fight, the top was Dos Santos, who won by unanimous decision in 2014. In the second confrontation, Miocic turned back knocking him off in round one during UFC 211. Stipe Miocic lost his championship belt last week, losing to Daniel Cormier during UFC 226. Before the defeat of Cormier he was the most effective holder of the UFC championship in the heavy weight category, defending him three times. Junior Dos Santos has not been a champion since defeats with Cain Velasquez in 2012.
Junior Dos Santos made a very important victory against Blagoy Ivanov, who is the former WSOF champion. Despite a long break with the Octagon, he was able to win each of the five rounds and was again in the lead of the heavy category.
