Junior dos Santos  is focusing on his trilogy bout with Cain Velasquez in Houston, but people are still wondering about a future bout between himself and Alistair Overeem. It looks like he’s not planning a bout with him within the future.

Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez have plenty of history. They have defeated each other once a piece and a trilogy bout for the heavyweight championship is a bout that plenty want to see.

“Bigfoot put him on his place. I no longer feel the wish to face him but I fight whomever the UFC puts in front of me. I will train aiming that guy and to be very well prepared to win,” Dos Santos told Terra.

“The limited fighters, guys who don’t believe in themselves, who don’t dedicate to the training and don’t take it seriously are the ones who make it to call for attention. They do it to hype themselves.

“It’s not that he [Overeem] is bad. He is an excellent fighter and he has great accomplishments in his career. You see [Chael] Sonnen making controversial statements as well but I’m not saying anything bad about him.”

Do you think a bout between Overeem and JDS is still something that could draw huge numbers? Is that still a future bout that you would like to see?
